VIDEO: Jumpstart Clean Energy with a National Institutes of Energy

Thanks to Senator Brown's staff for providing this video of the September briefing on the Hill releasing a paper I co-authored with Avi Zevin and Josh Freed of Third Way's clean energy program, "Jumpstarting a Clean Energy Revolution with a National Institutes of Energy" (pdf).

Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Congressman Rush Holt of New Jersey joins Matt Bennett and Josh Freed of Third Way and Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger of the Breakthrough Institute in this video to call for a dramatic scale-up in federal funding for clean energy innovation and create a new federal institution singularly focused on the kind of research and development that can make clean energy cheap and abundant, enable deep cuts in global warming pollution, and finally secure our nation's energy independence.

For more on the need for a major scale-up in federal R&D investments and the need for a National Institutes of Energy, see archives here.

You want to put people to work and nut just go to the moon but build the worlds best transportation system.
It's time has come we can either sit by and let the Chinese build this or we can roll up our sleeves and work together to build what the world would except from the USA when their down.
It's time for some creative thinking.

Please look at link.

Please do your part and the rest will be history
