LIVE Tonight at 8PM ET: A Discussion About Our Wars for Oil
As a follow up to my HuffPo entry yesterday, President Obama: Cheap Oil = Cheap Excuses, I ask you to join us tonight for a special Live streaming town hall panel at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CST on the topic of energy with Boone Pickens (Oil Tycoon & Founder, BP Capital Management), James Woolsey (Former CIA Director), Bob Deans (Associate Director of Communications - Natural Resources Defense Council) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK).
The dual crisis in Japan and the Mideast has made it clear to that Washington has failed for decades to set energy policy right and it is now up to us, the American People, to lead a discussion on the importance of energy independence in America.
This is a sample of what I'm learning about energy as I travel the country.
- America wastes 66% of all the energy we produce.
- T. Boone Pickens predicted on my show today that $6 gallon gas is coming in 2013.
- Warren Buffett gets preferred pricing on wind power in Iowa, a disparity that is hindering wind deployment.
- We CAN solve our energy problems, if we can find the will.
