Sustainable Energy

All human advances have been connected to advances in producing and using energy. We are now at a new crossroads and the path we take will be key to our survival.

“We must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow.

We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.”

Dwight D. Eisenhower
Farewell Address to the Nation
January 17, 1961
