GREEN FOCUS: Cool Things That Are Green

Why You Should Know Our Energy Secretary Steven Chu VIDEO
8/31/2009

Important people in the nation that will be leading the charge in positioning America to be at the scientific forefront of the green revolution is our Energy Secretary and basically our first Clean-Energy Secretary, Steven Chu. 

A Nobel Prize winning physicist has started by, as the Time article writes, “retooling a sclerotic department to shell out $39 billion worth of short term stimulus projects…while reorienting its long-term research and development toward artificial photosynthesis, advanced batteries and other technologies he envisions as low-emissions "game changers."”

The Time reporter went along with Chu to China while he spoke to the MIT of China, Tsinghua University and toured a clean energy conglomerate, ENN. “The clear message Chu took home from China was that its leaders are dead serious about climate change and clean energy…they're preparing for a carbon-constrained economy.”  C’mon America, make this happen before we’re too far behind.

You can also watch Chu’s recent interview on John Stewart’s The Daily Show.
