Cox School of Business's Maguire Energy Institute Launches Energy Blog

"Energy IQ" Provides Up-to-Date Commentary on the Energy Industry

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - June 20, 2008) - (SMU) -- Bruce Bullock, Director of the SMU Cox Maguire Energy Institute has launched a Blog that offers up-to-date expertise and commentary on the latest energy issues.

With summer travel season upon us, the timing could not be better for individuals and members of the media who are looking for academic, independent viewpoints.

"Unfortunately, the current debate on how to address our global energy challenges has consisted largely of pandering and pointing fingers," said Bullock. "The blog is intended to cut through this rhetoric and provide analysis and candid commentary on the issues."

For ongoing thoughts and comments, please visit Energy IQ on the web at www.energyiq.blogspot.com.
