At the risk of appearing immodest, I put together a terrific meeting this morning involving 2GreenEnergy’s transportation visionary Dan Sturges and some key industry players. I hung on every word, and really learned a lot.
I noted after we had adjourned that while the concept of sustainability was mentioned, it really didn’t get very high billing – and I just don’t understand this. The last time we changed our transportation paradigm (100 years ago when cars made our lives so much better and easier, enabled the concept of a suburb, etc.) it was really about convenience.
Now it’s about survival. Dealing with national security, climate change, ocean acidification, etc. are issues that lie at the base of humankind’s very existence here on Earth. One might think we’d be addressing all this with something of a sense of urgency.
