Quote of the Day: Tom Friedman on ET

et poster image

Tom Friedman on what he thinks should be one of the central issues in this election: who has the better plan to promote massive innovation around clean power technologies and energy efficiency.

"Why? Because renewable energy technologies — what I call "E.T." — are going to constitute the next great global industry. They will rival and probably surpass "I.T." — information technology. The country that spawns the most E.T. companies will enjoy more economic power, strategic advantage and rising standards of living. We need to make sure that is America. Big oil and OPEC want to make sure it is not." ::New York Times
