Every year 4 million people die because of dirty cook stoves, making it at least twice as deadly as malaria. In fact, each dirty cook stove produces as much carbon dioxide as a car. This issue became a top priority for former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who committed $12 million to funding clean cook stoves during her term. 

 

Peter Scott, CEO and founder of BURN design laboratory, which has built over 500,000 clean cook stoves in 13 African countries, joins Michael Shure to discuss this issue.
