As President Obama's picked Nobel Prize Steven Chu as the Energy Secretary, that knows what he is talking about the environment, he will need to enable Mr. Obama’s leadership to be able to turn around the global power industry to complete a global energy deal that is a prerequisite to complete the global environmental deal.

In the EWPC article The Next Energy Secretary, I articulated "the insights to enable the next energy secretary succeed... in black and white," back in October 3rd, 2008. Five days later, I added the EWPC sequel article U.S. Presidential Elections and the Need for a Global Energy Deal, which suggested that "The new president of the United States needs an Energy Secretary of high caliber that knows what he is talking about."
By reading in a Manifesto, "We, the founding members of the COPENHAGEN CLIMATE COUNCIL, have come together from backgrounds in business, government and science to help avert a potentially catastrophic change in climate. As leaders in our fields, we know that there is little time to act and that the responsibility for finding a solution lies firmly with us and our peers," we should agree that as a member of that council, Nobel Price physicist Dr. Steven Chu is such a "high caliber" Energy Secretary "that knows what he is talking about" the environment, by clearly understanding that a wait-and-see attitude, of those that do not know what they are talking about, is completely wrong.
I suggested in the second article that "To be a statesman, one of the essential requirement of” President Barack Obama "is to pick a high caliber Energy Secretary, that really knows what he is talking about on how to turn around the global power industry," which is in the way of the global environmental deal. So that leads us to beg: Will Dr. Chu enable Mr. Obama’s global leadership to be able to turn around the power industry?
