Steven Chu made history as the first Asian-American -- and the first scientist and Nobel Prize-winner -- to head the U.S. Department of Energy. Chu served during Obama's first term, where he oversaw a $35 billion-plus government investment in clean energy, before returning to work as a physics professor at Stanford. He continues to speak out on the dangers of climate change, and he joins us to talk about his time in Washington, his current work on sustainable energy and the intersection between science and public policy.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Steven Chu, former U.S. secretary of energy, professor of physics and molecular and cellular physiology at Stanford University
