Yesterday, 17 high level economic experts had a long summit with President-Elect Barack Obama. On David Gregorie’s newly renamed new show, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, a guest host had a substantive interview with Google’s President, Eric Schmidt.
This is incredibly important work. I thought Schmidt simple and highly practical immediate suggestions were right on target. For example, if the US or Michigan started a movement in Michigan to simply reinsulate homes, and in my opinion, replace appliances with more energy efficient one’s, it would help tremendously with statewide employment and serve as a testing ground to perfect the process of organizing that effort.
Once a system is proven in Michigan then it could spread across the county involving the currently unemployed and saving power generation at the same time.
What a simple and elegant approach to an immediate need.
