Secretary of Energy

This article by an organic farmer who used to work under Secretary of Energy Steven Chu has an interesting aside:

Cheer Up, It's Going to Get Worse

Fridley also believes assistance will not come from the world's leaders. Transition can only be a grass-roots revolution. He points out that Secretary of Energy Steven Chu was previously the director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where Fridley has done much of his thinking about peak oil and Transition.

"[Chu] was my boss," Fridley says. "He knows all about peak oil, but he can't talk about it. If the government announced that peak oil was threatening our economy, Wall Street would crash. He just can't say anything about it."
Yet he does talk about painting roofs white, and arguing with boneheads such as Rep. Joe Barton.
