Post No. 41b: Television Worth Viewing

Charlie Rose on PBS: A conversation with Thomas Friedman

http://www.charlierose.com/shows/2008/09/09/1/a-conversation-with-thomas-l-friedman

No matter what you may think of Thomas Friedman’s politics or positions, he raises some very significant points about innovation, global competition, and the future position of the United States, about which we should all be thinking. Friedman discusses his new book, Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - and How It Can Renew America )http://books.google.com/books?id=FMCxKQAACAAJ&dq=%22hot,+flat+and+crowded%22&ei=0VDHSOm9JpLkywS_q9DkAw.)


We can not simply continue to sit around, argue amongst ourselves, and think that terrorists are around every corner, while the world passes us by. This is a big picture discussion. We need to come up with solutions, and Friedman at least suggests some for our consideration.

Check your local listings. On the East Coast, it aired at 11:30 am on Tuesday, September 9, 2008.
