Burn: The Power Of One

This year's election is about power — the power to shape the nation's domestic and foreign priorities, the power to lead, to legislate, and to govern. Energy policy, defining how we use energy to power our economy and our lives, is among the most pressing issues for the next four years.

This special two-hour edition of BURN will feature stories about the power of one: how, in this election season, a single person, place, policy or idea can — with a boost from science — affect the nation's search for greater energy independence.
