"Finally, if Congress passes another stimulus package, it can't just be another round of $600 checks to go buy flat-screen TVs made in China. It has to also include bridges to somewhere -- targeted investments in scientific research, mass transit, domestic clean-tech manufacturing and energy efficiency that will make us a more productive and innovative society, one with more skills, more competitiveness, more productivity and better infrastructure to lead the next great industrial revolution: E.T. -- energy technology."

-Thomas Friedman

If you like that quote, you might enjoy some of our coverage of the financial crisis (http://thebreakthrough.org/blog/financial_crisis/) or are analysis of the changing political landscape surrounding energy issues (http://thebreakthrough.org/blog/new_energy_politics/). Keep reading, and enjoy,
