“The Power of Green” – Thomas Friedman

Here is a video to the article by Thomas Friedman (NY Times) about turning America green. I don’t always agree with Friedman, in fact less and less often so, but this was interesting. He likes to talk too much about terrorism. Compared to the global environmental challenge, I think, terrorism isn’t that big a deal. Anyway, here is a memorable quote:

“We don’t just need the first black president. We need the first green president. We don’t just need the first woman president. We need the first environmental president. We don’t just need a president who has been toughened by years as a prisoner of war but a president who is tough enough to level with the American people about the profound economic, geopolitical and climate threats posed by our addiction to oil — and to offer a real plan to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.” – Thomas Friedman
