Marketplace interviews President Obama. What would you ask?

Megan Larson Mar 21, 2012

Today, Marketplace host Kai Ryssdal is traveling to Boulder City, Nev., to interview President Barack Obama at the Copper Mountain solar plant. The facility, just outside of Las Vegas, is the nation’s largest, powering 17,000 homes with the use of nearly one million solar panels.

Copper Mountain is the first stop on a two-day energy tour by President Obama. After Boulder City, he’ll head to Roswell, N.M., where he will check out the nearby Maljamar oil fields.

This afternoon Kai will sit down with the president for 15 minutes to ask him about his administration’s “all of the above” energy policy, which advocates the use of both fossil fuels and renewable sources. Jobs, health care and housing are among the other topics to be discussed.
