We believe that the most highly-leveraged opportunity we have for solving global problems lies in a transformation in the way human civilization generates and utilizes energy.

Several promising high and low technology options need to be explored and supported.

But do we have the courage to change?

Increasing numbers of environmental researchers believe that rapid development of new energy technology is crucial to avoiding societal and planetary catastrophe.

Hard scientific evidence demonstrates that we can have clean, inexpensive, decentralized and safe energy.


What is needed is public focus and commitment to make it happen.
