Bill Moyers Journal | America's Energy Challenge and Obama's First Year | PBS

Duration: 53:20 (Full Program)
Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1339
Broadcast Date: Jan. 22, 2010

Assessing Obama's first year in office. And, confronting America's energy crisis.

Faced with the increasing global demand for oil and the threat of climate change, America needs a new energy policy — but what are our options? Bill Moyers sits down with Public Agenda analysts Jean Johnson and Scott Bittle to discuss how we can power America's future and why we should "work the problem" rather than listening to extremes on either side. Johnson and Bittle are co-authors of Who Turned Out the Lights? Your Guided Tour to the Energy Crisis .

Then, the JOURNAL assesses Obama's first year as president in the wake of Democrats' defeat in Massachusetts' special election for Senate with Princeton politics and African-American studies professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell and journalist Eric Alterman.
