Gi­ant leap for re­new­able en­ergy

Orlando Sentinel - - OPINION -

March 29: The A1 head­line on March 27, “Pence to NASA: Go to moon by ‘24”, got my at­ten­tion. I re­call be­ing in­spired by Pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy’s words at the be­gin­ning of the moon­shot pro­gram in the 1960s. We need an­other “moon­shot” ef­fort. But not to the moon.

Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence missed a chance to reignite that spark of ur­gency that pro­pelled Amer­ica to the van­guard of space ex­plo­ration 50 years ago by propos­ing a na­tional ef­fort promis­ing much greater ben­e­fit to mankind than any moon rock could pro­vide: De­vel­op­ing new tech­nolo­gies mak­ing re­new­able en­ergy sources and elec­tri­cal stor­age much more ef­fi­cient and af­ford­able than they are to­day.
