The first national radio show dedicated to the business of renewable energy will make its debut from the Miami studios of 880 The Biz (WZAB) on Monday, July 13, at 6:00 pm Eastern time.
“We’re going to talk about all forms of energy and we’re going to focus primarily on the business side of alternatives and renewables in the energy sector,” said O’Hanlon. “Most people focus on clean, green and sustainable but overlook the economic side of it – job creation, cost savings, cost competitiveness and the opportunity to invest in various technologies and companies in renewables.” The program will include all aspects of energy, from policy and petroleum concerns to wind, solar, hydro-electric, geothermal, and biofuels.
Guests for the premier show include two renowned energy authorities – worldwide peak oil expert Richard Heinberg, author of nine books including “Peak Everything” and aerospace engineer Dr. Robert Zubrin, author of Energy Victory, who says the nation needs and energy show like this right now. “I think it’s a great thing and I think it would be better if we had a network of such in every city across the country,” said Zubrin. “Because for America to break free from the oil cartel is essential for our future and people everywhere need to know how we can do it.”
O’Hanlon says radio stations in other major markets have already expressed an interest in airing the program. “We’ve gotten inquiries from Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, New York, and as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina,” he said.
O’Hanoln says the program will originate from WZAB-AM as a live call-in and will also be available live on the web at PureEnergyShow.com. It can also be followed on both Twitter and Facebook.
I interviewed both O’Hanlon and Zubrin about the new show, which you can listen to or download here. They are two separate interviews back-to-back in the same audio file. If you have never heard Dr. Zubrin speak at an event, this will give you just a taste of his very commonsense approach to achieving “Energy Victory” in this country and some of the ideas he will be talking about on “Pure Energy” July 13.
