At a time when relying on old forms of energy is no longer an option, Dr. Scott Tinker is traveling the globe in order to explore the many options for keeping society functioning as we move toward an uncertain future. Tours of energy sites that tout coal, solar power, oil, and biofuel as the answer allow Dr. Tinker the chance to weigh the pros and cons of each, while a look at some previously unknown options reveals just how far some innovators are going to solve what some consider to be the greatest dilemma of our time. Interviews with government leaders, industry trailblazers, and noted academics offer an open and honest conversation about a subject that impacts everyone on the planet.
