As the below article shows, other countries, such as China, are pulling out all stops to be the suppliers of alternative energy systems and equipment - in this case Wind Turbines. As we start reducing our dependency on foreign oil, will we just re-direct those dollars overseas to supply our new energy structure?
We are in a race, an Energy Race. In the sixties we were in a race to the moon. We won that race, barely, but it took perseverance, determination, and commitment to get there. We, as a country, need to regain our dominance in industry, manufacturing and technology. One of the best ways we have to do that right now is The Energy Race. But we cannot sit by and let other countries get so far ahead of us that we will never catch up, let alone succeed.
We need to get off our stools, stand up and make a serious commitment to our energy future. The time for rhetoric and hand clasping is over, the need for action is being made more clear every day we waste.
