Steven Chu Meets Jon Stewart

On the July 21 Daily Show, comedian Jon Stewart asked Energy secretary Steven Chu about the Markey-Waxman climate-change bill, passed by the House but still awaiting action by the Senate. While Stewart joked about a fictional super hero called "Cap’n Trade," Chu asserted that limiting carbon emissions is a critical and tremendous step forward for the United States and the world.

Help the climate bill pass: Write a letter in support of the bill to your state’s senators. The Sierra Club makes it easy to contact your representatives.

Connect with Steven Chu: The Energy secretary just joined Facebook. How often can you add a Cabinet member and Nobel laureate as a friend?

Curb global warming at home: Chu is a great advocate of white roofs. As he discusses on The Daily Show, switching to white roofs (and light-colored pavement) would be the equivalent of taking one billion cars off the road for 11 years.
