Omtale: Clean Tech Nation
The twenty-first century will be dominated by the nations that lead the race in clean-tech development, deployment, and wealth creation. Those that most effectively master low-carbon technologies, build new infrastructure, and invest in technological and human capital will succeed in creating jobs and growing their economies. Today, China is spending hundreds of billions on clean tech, and is the world leader in solar panel and wind turbine manufacturing. South Korea is dedicating huge resources to a grand Clean Energy New Deal. Germany, Japan, Denmark, India, and many others are also aggressively pursuing this burgeoning opportunity. If the United States is to remain dominant, as it has in the earlier high tech and Internet revolutions, it needs to supercharge efforts at every level-federal, state, city, and in every company. In "Clean Tech Nation", Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder combine lively storytelling with expert analysis, providing a compelling call to action and outlining the latest technology, policy, and financial tools the U.S. can wield to compete and win on this fast-changing, competitive global battlefield.
