Global Village Voices on Energy
The world is dependent on energy, to fuel vehicles, light homes and run businesses. However, not everyone has access to a constant supply of petrol or electricity, and many rural homeowners commonly own generators.
Over the next fifty years many scientists predict our supplies of fossil fuels will begin to run out, and the race is on to find alternative sources of energy.
In response to this global issue, Global Village Voices includes listeners' stories and answers to such simple questions as: Have you experienced power-cuts or fuel shortages? Do you run your home, or your car, on alternative energy sources? Do you work in the energy industry, and if so what are the perils and the rewards?
All this in a truly global partnership with partner stations and interested listeners.
