Will Rising Gas Prices in Libya be a Boon to Clean Energy?

via internet business politics

Over at the Atlantic, Adam Werbach writes that Libya's revolution offers a "second chance for clean energy". Now, I wasn't aware that clean energy had previously had but a single chance it evidently blew, but the story is otherwise worth keeping in mind: As oil prices continue to rise, the investment and policy environments will start looking much more hospitable to clean tech. And though John Boehner and co. are already announcing that "We need an 'all of the above' energy strategy" (read: more offshore drilling and nat gas) as he said in his Twitter feed, it will be important to make sure we take this opportunity to push for policies supporting truly sustainable forms of energy like solar and wind.
