Thomas Friedman on America’s need to go green


“The Moustache of Undertanding” is known for wildy mixed metaphors, lots of corporate name-dropping and a propensity for handwaving not seen since the heyday of Wired Magazine. Despite all that, he usually makes some very good points about the society we live in, and he continues to do so in “The Power of Green,” an article in the New York Times Magazine that advocates America retake the scientific lead it once had, and eliminate its need for fossil fuels, by leading the charge with sustainability research and development. A great idea, though it’ll probably put the brakes on globalization, Friedman’s other favorite talking point.
