Smil and the Whole World Smils with You: Part I of Vaclav Smil Interview

This week on Sea Change Radio, a rare interview with renowned energy expert and futurist, Vaclav Smil. A Distinguished Professor in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Manitoba in Canada, Smil is the author of 29 books dealing with energy, environment, population, history, and technical advances.

 In Part I of host Alex Wise‘s two part discussion with him, Professor Smil delves into why he has shied away from radio and television appearances since being labeled a “climate change denier” by some environmentalists. He discusses his latest book on energy transitions and shares his thoughts on how long it may actually take for us to wean ourselves from a fossil fuel-based global economy.
