On an average day in the United States, seven young people are shot to death. A British journalist chooses a random day in 2013 and profiles each of the lives cut short.
The world’s automotive industry is on the verge of dramatic transformation. Auto experts predict cars in the not-too-distant future will look very different from what we see on the roads today. And they will run on electricity – not gas. In a new book, a young entrepreneur and former Department of Energy adviser argues that America could once again lead the world’s auto industry. But to do so will require more than the innovation and vision America’s greatest companies are known for. It will also require strategic government policy. Join Diane for a discussion of the global race for the car of the future and what it will take for the U.S. to win it.
- Levi Tillemann fellow at the New America Foundation; co-founder of a clean-energy startup; and former adviser to the U.S. Department of Energy.
