Energy of Secretary Steve Chu, Obama Cabinet Media Superstar

When is the last time you’ve remembered who the Secretary of Energy was? I can’t think of one, until now; as you know, I’ve been blogging about Dr. Steven Chu as soon as he arrived on the scene.

This past week, Dr. Steven Chu was on the The Daily Show and Jon Stewart exclaimed: “You’re, I think, the first cabinet member I’ve met from the Obama administrator that seems alive.” Chu is smart, articulate, funny and visible. Chu believes the cap-and-trade bill is a great opportunity for America to lead a new industrial revolution and debunks detractors of global warming.

In March, Chu was interviewed on Charlie Rose. In June, Rolling Stone profiled “Chu as Secretary of Saving the Planet.” (.pdf) Chu is even on Facebook these days at I’m loving that Chu is using his bully pulpit to promote energy independence, efficiency and to fight global warming — I’d say he’s the most visible Asian Americans and cabinet secretary in the US today.
