The Clean Energy Summit is ON!!!

Starting on Monday, Las Vegas hosted a positively heavenly summit.  The National Clean Energy Summit 2.0 is a place where the great political movers and shakers come to speak and share ideas about governmental policy.  The event is organized by the Center for American Progress and the Energy Future Coalition.  Just so you know who seems to be backing this group it put out a memo explaining the benefits of natural gas and building efficiency.  Natural gas and building interests checked.

The National Clean Energy Summit 2.0

Speakers at the event include such big names as Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, businessman T. Boone Pickens, Bill Clinton, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Al Gore, and green jobs advocate Van Jones.

I will be reporting about the project as more news becomes available.  Please read the groups memo which you can find here. The most interesting part of the pdf. is that 40 percent of U.S. homes and buildings would save consumers $1,200 a month on energy bills and create 625,000 jobs through retrofitting.  Do you smell stimulus justification?
