BURN: The Power of One, Part 2

(Rochester, New York) – The upcoming November general election is about power — the power to shape the nation’s priorities domestic and foreign, the power to lead, to legislate, to govern. Energy policy, defining how we use energy to power our economy and our lives, is among the most pressing issues politicians will debate in the election run-up. It is the “power of one” — whether one man or woman, one event, one idea, one election. BURN: The Power of One, Part 2 airing Sunday, October 7, 2012 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD91.5-2, embraces this idea. All of the stories featured during this two-hour special illustrate ways that the “power of one” affects energy policy, with a focus on the science behind these energy issues, and that these stories will play out on the stage of November's general election.

In the next four years, the United States will have one fundamental energy policy challenge – how to make the country more self-sufficient. In Part 2 of The Power of One, host Alex Chadwick shares stories about the next frontiers of energy development, the fields of exploration that may help the U.S. to produce more energy at home and import less from abroad.
