News Panel: The cost of gas and Peter Gleick

Watch Complete Episode: February 24, 2012 »

If sky high gas prices are driving you crazy already, you may be in for a long summer. This is the first time the price of gas has risen so early in the year to more than $4.00 per gallon. A strengthening economy, tightening global oil supply, increased demand, and the rising threat of conflict in Iran all contribute to the nationwide price hike. It's become a hot button political issue, providing fodder for Wednesday's Republican presidential debate and addressed by President Obama in his energy speech on Thursday.

Renowned water and climate-issues expert Peter Gleick admitted that he used a false identity to obtain confidential documents from the Heartland Institute, a pro-industry think tank known for minimizing the risks of global warming. Gleick, president of the Oakland non-profit Pacific Foundation, has sent shock waves throughout the national scientific community, which is concerned that his actions might damage the credibility of climate science.

Guests:

  • David R. Baker, San Francisco Chronicle
  • Paul Rogers, San Jose Mercury News
