I have been a NY Yankees fan for a long time. And, I have also been a fan of George Steinbrenner, long time owner of the Yankees who passed away last month.
According to press reports, the above quote was prominently displayed in his office. And, it reflected his management style.
A lead article on the front page of Tuesday’s New York Times featured Portugal as a leader in “a clean-energy makeover.”
The development of wind and solar renewable systems capitalized on two sources of local natural resources in Portugal : sun and wind.
Back at home, prospects for a real energy policy seem to be on hold. It shouldn’t be. We need a Steinbrenner type of leadership. We need it now!
Unlike Portugal, we’re not really using the sun and wind. We’re cleaning up tar balls! Let’s get rid of the tar balls. Let’s get an energy policy.
