The King of Coal. Prince of Wind?
Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal
With America's largest deposits of coal and uranium, Wyoming sends massive amounts of energy to California and the rest of the country.
Governor Dave Freudenthal is trying to chart a new path for an extraction state where half the people don't believe global warming is real.
He's looking to cleaner ways of using coal and believes natural gas is a winner, for fueling transportation or generating electricity.
Wind power is also promising but getting it to market without trampling on endangered species and testy landowners is a challenge.
Can California technology and innovation help illuminate the way? Join us for a special opportunity to discuss America's energy future with the down-to-earth chief executive of this powerhouse state.
