Last week, President Obama released the Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future, which focuses on increasing the use of renewable energy and reducing the nation’s dependence on foreign oil. The unrest in North Africa and the Middle East coupled with rising gas prices has many Americans concerned about energy security and this blueprint is designed to help ease these concerns.

Yesterday, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar led a question and answer session about the blueprint. Salazar took questions from a live audience as well as questions submitted through the White House Facebook page.
