May 25, 2012

Following President Obama’s stop at an Iowa wind turbine blade manufacturer to warn of the pending loss of wind energy tax credits, host Ben Kieffer talks with wind energy businessman Rob Hoch from Alta who sat down with the President this week. Also, David Kreutzer, a senior policy analyst from the Heritage Foundation talks about the potential problems with wind energy. Later, Ben talks with author Philip Warburg whose new book, “Harvest the Wind”, looks at the hope and promise wind energy could bring to declining rural communities.
