Other participants that joined today’s steering committee meeting were Assistant Secretary Karsner from the Department of Energy and Larry Weber of Racepoint Group.

Mr. Karsner praised the work of the ESIS as one of the most important initiatives from one of the most influential groups.  The conversation that ensued discussed the previous election between Bush and Kerry, specifically how energy was only brought up once.  Everyone was in agreement how things had changed in a few shorts years.  Discussion then moved onto the importance of creating incentives so that the private puts more money into developing renewable energy and technology that boosts efficiency.

Next was Larry Weber of Racepoint Group, a global public relations firm that is working to breathe new life into the Council’s social/digital media presence with a new Facebook page, helping the CoC update their information in Wikipedia, adding video to CoC’s YouTube page and launching the Council’s first blog.  “We really have an opportunity to own a dialogue that has a lot of people, like Boone Pickens and Al Gore, taking high profile roles,” said Weber.   “We are obviously the organization with the best ideas.  Now we just need to communicate them effectively through social and offline media.”
