The Apostle David Freeman

Lifelong energy bureacrat/executive S. David Freeman is taking some time from trying to fix the pollution problems at the Port of Los Angeles to flak his new book, "Winning Our Energy Independence."

On the hustings, Freeman is positively evangelical telling alternative energy retailers that they have an obligation to educate the world about the green energy, saying "It is a matter of will power for retailers to become evangelists on the subject."

It certainly sounds like Freeman channeling fellow Tennesseean Al Gore and is a white board and a cheap video camera away from "An Inconvenient Truth II-- Return of the Boredom."

In the Bee, Dan Weintraub called the book "part memoir, part lecture, part recipe for an oil-free economy ".
