THE GREAT DEBATE: IS ENERGY INDEPENDENCE POSSIBLE & A GOOD THING?
Basin PBS Produces/Texas Lyceum Hosts Forum to Air Statewide on Texas PBS Stations

August 6, 2010 – Is energy independence really possible and would it be as good for Texas and the U.S. as conventional wisdom suggests?
As we analyze our state’s growth, how will new technologies and the growth in renewable energy impact Texas' decision-making?

Join Basin PBS and The Texas Lyceum as we produce THE GREAT DEBATE for air on PBS stations across Texas. Take part as we examine the state and the nation’s energy direction. Experts from across Texas will be on hand to discuss how much energy Texas will need for the future, where it will come from, how we will make sure we have enough and how we will ensure that it’s a diversified mix.
