New Energy Secretary Issues Dire Warning on Global Warming

Hosted by

On at least one issue, President Obama has reversed the Bush Administration by 180 degrees, a move that could be crucial for California. The new Energy Secretary, Stephen Chu, is a Californian, and today he made a stark prediction about California’s future. If no action is taken to slow climate change, there will be no agriculture in less than 100 years. Chu gave his first interview since taking office to Jim Tankersley of the Chicago Tribune Company.
