I cannot wait to learn about the different ideas for clean and sustainable energy development for the United States and world. Developing alternative energy is undeniably critical to the short and long term health of the american and global economy as well as the environment. It is time we recognize the need for change in the aftermath of the Gulf-Horizon oil spill and of Libya's current political unrest. Excessive dependence on fossil fuel is simply dangerous. It is dangerous environmentally, economically, and politically. We can no longer allow the American economy and environment to be dependent upon a finite, dirty, and unstable energy base. It is time to invest, innovate and diversify our energy base. It is time to progress towards energy independence. It is time for a Power Shift. Power Shift 2011-- let's make it count!
