Great article by Thomas Friedman in today’s NYTimes. We can continue to support the entrenched status quo. We can say we like oil, gas & coal…it’s more important not to disrupt today’s economy…and then bequeath to our children an economy dominated by those countries who were willing to create disincentives to fossil fuel consumption, and support the development ofrenewable energy.
Or, we can decide that we need to mobilize, even if that means (gasp!) fuel taxes and continued incentives for alternative energy to really jump back into the race.
Oh, and we may save the planet in the process 😉
