What He Said: Steven Chu on Clean Energy

"The United States faces a choice today: Will we sit on the sidelines and fall behind or will we play to win the clean energy race? Some say this is a race America can't win. They're ready to wave the white flag and declare defeat... Others say this is a race America shouldn't even be in. They say we can't afford to invest in clean energy. I say we can't afford not to... It's not enough for our country to invent clean energy technologies -- we have to make them and use them too. Invented in America, made in America, and sold around the world -- that's how we'll create good jobs and lead in the 21st century." -- Energy Secretary Steven Chu, via Huffington Post
