Science Friday

China's thirst for energy is rising. But to save its cities from suffocating pollution, leaders are looking to carbon-free energy sources and electric vehicles. Click here for more information about China's energy future.

We need domestic bees. But what happens to wild bees when they share a space? We discuss the good and the bad in the latest installment of Good Thing, Bad Thing.

And Maggie Koerth-Baker of Five Thirty Eight gives Ira a tour of this week's science headlines in our weekly News Round-up.
