Russ interviews the former president, Shell Oil Co., founder of Citizens for Affordable Energy and author of “Why We Hate the Oil Companies.” Hofmeister makes the point that we are in a “leadership crisis,” that the leadership qualities we need in the 21st century are different from the qualities that were effective in the 20th century.
