Q. What does the pathway to cheap renewable energy at scale look like? Do you think there’s enough political and societal will to make it happen?
A. As a society, we have chosen to invest too little in alternative energy over the years, and that has made some of the choices much harder than they should be… We should be investing in new wind technologies that promise substantially lower cost. We should be investing in enhanced geothermal, we should be investing in cheaper, safer, cleaner nuclear…. We need to invest across the spectrum.”
