Steven Chu

The excellent astrophysics/physics/science/politics/miscellania blog Cosmic Variance has a posting today about newly-confirmed Secretary of Energy Steven Chu addressing the National Labs (Chu comes from Lawrence Berkely National Lab).  These notes from his presentation are very encouraging.

I haven’t found much else out there on the web providing significant details about Chu’s positions.  He makes a video statement on the Obama-Biden transition website (including a statement about a Manhattan Project style effort for transitioning to renewable energy), there is a posting on a Wall Street Journal blog, and a throwaway piece in Business Week – that seems to be about it. Please let me know if you have insights into his views on energy, other than his obvious interest in biofuels.
