Global warming, air pollution, and energy insecurity are three of the most significant problems facing the world today. Our guest Mark Jacobson from Stanford University discussed these problems, and technical and economic plans to solve them by powering 100% of the world, individual countries, and states for all purposes, including electricity, transportation, industry, and heating/cooling, with wind, water, and sunlight together with efficiency measures, within 20-40 years. He discussed specific plans for California and New York State.

Dr. Jacobson's introduction and content start at about 07:40 and run to 46:45, with Q & A after that.
