Switch - To a Smarter Future
Dr. Ernie Moniz - MIT Energy Initiative
"They're good for the climate, good for security, good for your pocketbook"
"The preferred approach should be managing spent nuclear fuel for at least 100 years"
"We need a scientific evaluation, then whatever measures are required will be taken"
"Cost reduction is as true for biofuels as it is for solar"
"There is physical storage, chemical storage, but also you could store in fuels"
"It's certainly a myth that if we stopped importing oil, oil prices would go down"
"Solar tends to be on when you want it"
"The government should be supporting these low carbon options"
"The real problem today is we have no choice for our transportation fuel"
"Everbody likes the idea of carbon free energy, but there are issues of sight lines"
"This is not a deft, fast-adpating system -- but it's the one we need to innovate within"
"We simply have to figure out a way to employ coal"
"In the end, that is the direction we need to go in"
"What a valuable and flexible commodity it is"
"There's another kind of pollution: noise"
