~2008 repeat show about

~2008 repeat show about global warming and solar panles.

Interviews authors of:

Hell and High Water
Solar Revolution

Both authors discuss, among many other things, hydrogen-powered cars with fuel cells, and both correctly predict that instead, plugin hybrids with batteries are the way of the immediate future.

Very good show if you haven't heard it before or heard it too often and can use a refresher. Everything still relevant, all predictions seem to have held true 5 years later. Starts off doom and gloom and ends correctly predicting solar paint which was created in 2011, and is cheap, but as of 2011 only about 5% as efficient as modern solar panels.

I've been out of the loop for a few years, and really enjoyed hearing the show again (my memory is pretty shot though--your mileage may differ).
