What should America’s energy future be, and how do we hammer out an environmentally conscious national energy security plan for the future?   

John Hofmeister  joined Current State from Livonia at the Detroit Area Forum to answer these questions. Hofmeister, a former President of Shell Oil company, heads the non-profit group Citizens for Affordable Energy.  He, T. Boone Pickens and a few others belong to an interesting group of energy executives and ex-executives who are advocating for alternative energy sources.
