The White House and Congress created Operation Warp Speed and started plowing some $18 billion into it.
The US government should throw its muscle behind ramping up a mammoth, rapid rollout of all forms of renewable energy.
A Climate Warp Speed campaign should invert that ratio.
With renewable energy, the US government could pledge to buy as much clean energy as firms can make.
“If the government just said, ‘Look, we’ll buy the first batch’-all of a sudden the scientists get to do what they do best, which is focus on the science and build it with certainty,” Latimer says.
A climate Warp Speed could use the organizational oomph of our government and military to bring clean energy to every federal building nationwide.
Carbon sequestration needs the Warp Speed treatment too.
