Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was in San Antonio, pushing for the city and the state of Texas to invest more in green energy, and get away from fossil fuels.
“Together, we must invest in the green economy. It’s the safest, best way forward.” he said through an interpreter.
Gorbachev is pushing solar energy, which he says is clean, renewable and available. His group says the current worldwide economic crisis needs solutions that will help the Earth, while acknowledging green energy is more expensive and lacks critical infrastructure.
Hmm. I wonder how well Gorby's arguments to "get away from fossil fuels" fly back home.
