You’ll find valuable his take on what’s gone right and on work yet to be done in the cleantech space.  And listen up now, because we’re running out of time to fully realize a cleantech future made possible by an international effort to fully leverage technology and our environments needs with the desires of everyday people inhabiting Mother Earth.
