Sporting a goatee, former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer was on CNN to promote his new book, “Power Up.energy.”
In the interview, he talks briefly about the Presidential campaigns but basically focuses on energy independence as he blasts the Saudi royal family and our involvement in the Middle East.
That’s all good stuff but with his past support of the Keystone XL pipeline and the moniker “coal cowboy,” we’ll have to wait and see just how green his energy solutions are.
Schweitzer has been out of the headlines for awhile. He’s been busy as chairman of the board of Stillwater Mining Co., no doubt. It’s been mired in layoffs and labor disputes. It’s good to have him back in the limelight in a different venue as he usually supplies colorful copy.
I didn’t even know he was writing a book but you can find more details at his Facebook page. I probably won’t buy the book, though, until he shows up in Missoula and I can get an autographed copy.
