It’s time to throttle up on green energy investment

Manish Bapna, acting president of the World Resources Institute and a blogger in the intersection between economics and the environment, has a very good piece on the Forbes blog, which is becoming one of my fave reads, on why we should be following the smart money and getting behind green tech and green energy production.

Mr. Bapna refers to a recent policy paper jointly published by WRI, the Brookings Institution, and the Breakthrough Institute arguing for continuing public investment in green energy, with a gradual winding down of that support as the sector matures.

One of the authors of that report, Brookings’ Mark Muro, writes in the Boston Globe about what this means for one state, although the lessons apply nationally.
