“Thank God It’s Monday” is to help companies thrive!
This week’s focus: innovation
Our dependence on crude oil impacts our national and economic security.
It’s time the U.S. government sponsors a “Manhattan project” or “JFK man on the moon project” to develop and commercialize technologies that would, in a few short years, create the path to eliminating our dependence on crude oil. The U.S. needs to move aggressively on this, not simply study possible solutions.
The corporations and nations benefiting from the current situation are content with the status quo. The U.S. government can put substantial heft behind initiatives to alter the status quo.
Let’s not restrict ourselves to one technology or approach, e.g., electric cars, hydrogen, compressed natural gas (CNG), nuclear, etc. Just kidding about nuclear I think–but, who knows? I’d also like to see an upgrade path to economically converting existing internal combustion, gas-powered vehicles to CNG or other energy forms so people can realistically and affordably take advantage of these technologies.
“Drill, baby, drill” isn’t the answer, in the short-term or long-term. When will the U.S. take the lead on this and create hundreds of thousands of jobs that help our nation and other nations in the world thrive?
Thought for the week:
