Live from Stanford: Secretary Chu on the Global Clean Energy Challenge
Posted by Secretary Steven Chu on March 08, 2010 at 01:45 PM EST What are the steps we must take as a nation to create new, clean energy jobs and ensure Americas long-term competitiveness? What are the consequences for our climate of inaction? How can science and technology offer us new and better choices and how can Americas young people make a difference?
Today, Im returning to Stanford University, where I spent many years as a professor, to discuss these and many other issues with a great group of students. Id like to invite you to watch my speech live here at 3:00PM Eastern time/noon Pacific, and then share your thoughts afterward on my personal Facebook page to continue the conversation.

Dr. Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy
Biography courtesy of the Department of Energy”
SNIPPET: “Dr. Steven Chu, distinguished scientist and co-winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics (1997), was appointed by President Obama as the 12th Secretary of Energy and sworn into office on January 21, 2009.
Dr. Chu has devoted his recent scientific career to the search for new solutions to our energy challenges and stopping global climate change a mission he continues with even greater urgency as Secretary of Energy. He is charged with helping implement President Obamas ambitious agenda to invest in alternative and renewable energy, end our addiction to foreign oil, address the global climate crisis and create millions of new jobs.”
SNIPPET: “In announcing Dr. Chus selection on December 15, 2008, President Obama said, the future of our economy and national security is inextricably linked to one challenge: energy Steven has blazed new trails as a scientist, teacher, and administrator, and has recently led the Berkeley National Laboratory in pursuit of new alternative and renewable energies. He is uniquely suited to be our next Secretary of Energy as we make this pursuit a guiding purpose of the Department of Energy, as well as a national mission.”

Video description - quote:
July 31, 2007
The fifth in a six part video series with Van Jones, from IONS Conversations at the Edge series in San Francisco, recorded on December 2, 2005.
In this segment Van Jones uses humor, compassion and insight as he discusses the conditions in society right now and poses the question: “Who will we be in 100 years as a society?” The answer to that question clearly hinges on our current values of what constitutes ‘good and evil’.
