China Leaves U.S. in Clean Energy Dust: Teryn Norris on The Alyona Show
On Wednesday evening, I was interviewed on TV as part of The Alyona Show in a segment called "China Leaves U.S. in Clean Energy Dust," aired live in Washington DC, New York City, and Los Angeles.
In the midst of a raging nation-wide debate on energy and climate policy, Alyona asked me what will it take for lawmakers to realize the U.S. is falling behind in the global clean energy industry and take the necessary action to regain our position. We discussed the clean energy race and implications for federal policy, the need for a "third way" energy and climate strategy based on public investment in technology innovation, and the DOE Clean Energy Ministerial as an alternative global forum for climate change mitigation.
