A message from President Bill Clinton

For those who missed the Fortune Green Brainstorm held in Laguna last week, President Bill Clinton was the keynote, speaking about the difficult task ahead for Obama in passing an economic recovery package AND climate change legislation. Clinton feels both are vital to the future prosperity and security of the United States.

He reviewed how the Clinton Initiative is tackling climate change.

Clinton also discussed his long-term commitment to renewable energy, dating back to his days as the governor of Arkansas. As governor, he hired Amory Lovins to prove the economic advantages of energy efficiency and the construction of a new and very expensive nuclear reactor.

Overall Clinton said he was optimistic about the current administration’s desire to invest in new energy technologies. The critical next step is for the private sector to prove to the world that clean energy “makes good business sense,” according to Clinton.
