NEED TO KNOW

Ending Paralysis: New Jersey and Germany

  • Aired: 01/18/2013
  • 24:45
  • Expires: 01/18/2018
  • Rating: NR
Need to Know explores why it takes nearly four times as long to complete infrastructure projects in the United States than it did in the 1970s. The Bayonne Bridge is a case study in gridlock. By comparison, correspondent Rick Karr reports on how German political parties of every stripe are now backing a plan that is expected to nearly end that country’s use of fossil fuels by 2050.
