We use oil. We use coal. We use gas. We use energy resources and technologies that diminish our stores of natural resources and poison our environment. It’s really not a very smart model anymore.
We need to create a future and leave the fossil fuels in the ground – in our past. It took millions of years to create those reserves and we are on our way to using them up within two centuries while pretending they’ll be there forever.
Imagine ‘intelligent pavement’ that could generate power for use elsewhere AND power our vehicles AND pay for itself – imagine replacing asphalt roads with solar panels in glass surfaces. It’s possible.
Imagine the jobs in research, manufacturing and construction. Imagine people imagining solutions.
