Need To Know

Ending Paralysis: New Jersey and Germany

Season 3 Episode 3 | 24m 45s

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.
