Pure Energy, the first national radio show dedicated to the business of renewable energy, recently launched from the Miami studios of 880 The Biz (WZAB). Pure Energy is hosted by noted energy expert Sean O’Hanlon, executive director of the American Biofuels Council (ABC).
“We’re going to talk about all forms of energy and we’re going to focus primarily on the business side of alternatives and renewables in the energy sector,” O’Hanlon says. “Most people focus on clean, green and sustainable but overlook the economic side of it – job creation, cost savings, cost competitiveness, and the opportunity to invest in various technologies and companies in renewables.” The program will include all aspects of energy, from policy and petroleum concerns to wind, solar, hydro-electric, geothermal, and biofuels.
O’Hanlon says the program will originate from WZAB-AM as a live call-in and will also be available live on the web at PureEnergyShow.com. “Looking forward to audience participation and questions,” he says. “It’s certainly going to be informative and entertaining.”
Guests for the premier show include two renowned energy authorities — worldwide peak oil expert Richard Heinberg, author of nine books including Peak Everything and aerospace engineer Dr. Robert Zubrin, author of Energy Victory, who believes the nation needs and energy show like this right now. “I think it’s a great thing and I think it would be better if we had a network of such in every city across the country,” Zubrin says. “Because for America to break free from the oil cartel is essential for our future and people everywhere need to know how we can do it.”
O’Hanlon says radio stations in other major markets have already expressed an interest in airing the program. “We’ve gotten inquiries from Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, New York, and as far away as Buenos Aires, Argentina,” he says.
