10-50 Solution
Alex Steffen, 3 May 04

There's something kind of thrilling about hearing a staid, major, heavy-hitting think tank executive with a massive budget go visionary on what it'll take to beat this whole climate change situation into shape:

"Here is what we know.  First, we know that we need a low-carbon economy by mid-century.   Second, we know that it will take a new industrial revolution to get there, and that low-carbon energy technologies will play a critical role in that revolution.  And, third, we know that all signs indicate that we cannot and will not achieve a low-carbon economy if we continue on a “business-as-usual” path. ...

"I believe we need to be thinking about four major issues as we map our path to a low-carbon future.  The first of these is technology development—in other words, how to spark an energy technology revolution."

There's much more in Eileen Claussen's keynote to the Envirodesign conference and on the Pew Center on Global Climate Change site.
