Solving our energy problems and saving life on Earth will require reinventing the American economy in order to create and sustain a new wave of technological innovation.

Watch FLYP Media’s video interview with Daniel M. Kammen, in which he discusses how the world can work together to possibly save our planet from impending climate change.

"The scientific verdict on climate change is long-since decided: we
must act now, not in a decade, but now. The financial case has also
become clear: it is past time to create the new clean and low-carbon
energy economy…The Copenhagen Climate Council [in November and
December of 2009] is the right venue
at the right time to forge new
understanding of the opportunities to blend best science with
progressive economics to create new business opportunities that can
bring about the energy system we want, not just tinker with the one we
inherited."       – Daniel M. Kammen

 

In FLYP’s interactive infographic, see how the numbers stack up in the fight against global warming.
