Another great column today by Thomas Friedman in the NY Times.
Worth reading, points out the great impact that laying out the renewable energy infrastructure will have (specifically for the US). If you look at Germany's leadership in the renewable space, you can see how it should be done, and the impact it will continue to have on the country (seems like Germany has transitioned from Automotive leadership to renewable leadership)
"...The exciting thing about the energy technology revolution is that it spans the whole economy — from green-collar construction jobs to high-tech solar panel designing jobs"
"...It’s time to stop borrowing and start building. America’s No. 1 resource is not oil or mortgages. Our No. 1 resource is our people. Let’s put people back to work — retrofitting and repowering America. ... You can’t base a national economy on credit cards. But you can base it on solar panels, wind turbines, smart biofuels and a massive program to weatherize every building and home in America."
I hope McCain, Obama, and some others read Friedman... and act when its their time
