In case you haven't noticed the links on the left sidebar of this blog, I want to call your attention to EnergyTomorrow Radio (ETR)--our biweekly podcast that addresses everything energy. Since ETR began in 2007, I've interviewed a variety of energy experts on issues ranging from untapped U.S. resources, to Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel, to energy policy under a new administration.

Some of our past guests have included:

  • Ben Stein, economist, author and comedian
  • Robert Shapiro, principal of SONECON and former Undersecretary of Commerce under President Bill Clinton
  • James Hackett, president and CEO of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
  • Gary Luquette, president of Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company

In our latest episode, Nick Loris, research assistant and The Foundry blog contributor, and Ben Lieberman, senior policy analyst from The Heritage Foundation, talk about the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES), which is being considered by Congress. Among other things, Loris and Lieberman explain the bill's potential costs to consumers.

Happy listening!
