A Nobel Prize for Renewable Energy


  • 04 2011 12
    Kerala, India --President Obama's Nobel Peace Prize was conferred in anticipation of the future good he would do more than for deeds he had already accomplished. Can there not be a Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry prospectively announced for scientists who achieve a breakthrough in solar energy or storage technologies in the next five years? A Nobel is an incentive all by itself, even if such breakthroughs would bring with them their own commercial rewards.What better way to raise awareness of the issues surrounding depleting oil and global warming, and the role our oil- and coal-driven economy plays in both than to create the buzz of a Nobel Prize? I cannot think of a more urgent, global need than weaning away from the hydro-carbon economy and yet even Al Gore, a U.S. Vice President, made only a small dent in public awareness.
