Thomas Friedman…”We Believe!”

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/18/opinion/18friedman.html

“We believe that in a world getting warmer and more crowded with more ‘Americans,’ the next great global industry is going to be E.T., or energy technology based on clean power and energy efficiency. It has to be. And we believe that the country that invents and deploys the most E.T. will enjoy the most economic security, energy security, national security, innovative companies and global respect. And we believe that country must be America. If not, our children will never enjoy the standard of living we did. And we believe the best way to launch E.T. is to set a fixed, long-term price on carbon — combine it with the Obama team’s impressive stimulus for green-tech — and then let the free market and innovation do the rest.”

* Read the whole article. It’s a great one!

Tom, I love you. Thank you for standing up for reason & sense…if we make our own energy at home (solar, wind, et al.) then we’re a more stable society.

Well said, my man. Your words inspire me.
