Go team! Score one for recycling

I’ve heard many wonks say we won’t be on track with a new energy economy in this country until we get competitive about it. Not just with other countries, but with each other.

Symbols of wealth and even excess carry great allure in this country, and so this will obviously require significant shifting and re-prioritizing.
