The gigantic energy bill headed to the president's desk would encourage new nuclear power plants, make the electricity grid more reliable and extend daylight savings time. But, it would do little to reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Join host Neal Conan and guests for an exploration of energy independence.

Guests:

David Friedman, research director of the Clean Vehicles Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists

Thomas Friedman, columnist with The New York Times; author of The World Is Flat
