Interesting day for Energy Secretary Steven Chu.
Here’s how it begins:
Washington, DC – In recognition of Bike to Work Day, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu will ride his bike from his home to a rally at Freedom Plaza this Friday, May 15. The Secretary is participating in the event to highlight the Administration’s commitment to reducing our dependence on foreign oil by supporting alternative, clean energy modes of transportation.
US Energy Secretary Steven Chu will address the National Coal Council Spring Meeting on Friday, May 15, 2009. Secretary Chu will highlight the Obama Administration’s commitment to carbon capture and storage as an important part of our nation’s effort to create new jobs and transform the way we use and produce energy.
I wonder if he’ll bike over to see the coal guys. He used to bike all the time as a Stanford prof. That’s him in the middle, below. I assume he took his helmet off for the photo. Hope someone snaps a better one tomorrow.
