This week, at a special UN conference on climate change in New York, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said this regarding efforts to mitigate global warming, "Ultimately, we must develop and bring to market new energy technologies that transcend the current system of fossil fuels, carbon emissions and economic activity. Put simply, the world needs a technological revolution."

The Secretary did not say whether the US would lead the revolution or join the fight started by other nations. She also did not hint as to which new energy technologies would be at the root of the uprising.

If an energy revolution comes, solar energy - photovoltaic or thermal - will be a major participant. The Sun already keeps us alive. We need to take advantage of it more than we do.
