In this special "Energy Roundtable" episode from IHS CERAWeek, Aaron talks with Barry Smitherman, the Chairman of the Railroad Commission of Texas (which has nothing to do with railroads!). They discuss the Commission and it's control over Texas' 1.6 million barrel per day oil production (equating to more oil than the U.S. imports from Saudi Arabia) and 19 billion cubic feet per day Natural Gas production (which accounts for over 30% of all U.S. production). They also talk about the hot-button issue of Fracking and the steps the RCT has taken toward safer regulation, the Pickens Plan, made famous by T. Boone Pickens, and Natural Gas. Plus: the culture in Washington, the lack of a National Energy Strategy, alternative fuel sources, and how we fix the Federal Deficit and Debt.
