It’s shouldn’t be a question, we should be changing our energy attitudes. This is the question of the day, will the economic crisis experienced world-wide slow down renewable energy growth? It’s too bad that it’s framed as a question, when it should be framed as an opportunity: Our present economics and reliance on fossil-burning fuel have failed us, now it’s time to change our economies so that our economies reflect their effect on our environment and all governments should be focusing on wind and solar power for our future energy needs—even oil and coal companies should devote their monies to making solar and wind power work (which, I know is heresy.)
Our underlying assumption about our economy is fundamentally flawed: We assume that The Economy (that man created) Rules – but it doesn’t Nature does. Throw a dollar at a hurricane and see what that does for ya.
