TomPaine.com - Climate Change, Economic Change

"The real opportunity cost for America, however, is the spate of innovation, manufacturing and construction a shift from centralized to renewable energy would entail. Rebuilding our communities to use energy more intelligently provides the a powerful and long-term source of domestic economic growth our economists say America is desperate for. And shifting to renewables means we can help the rest of the developing world, 4.5 billion people, get a shot at a better life. If we stick to centralized energy, suburban sprawl and inefficient consumption, we'll be forced to subsidized it from a treasury that is already trillions in the red. Preserving the old economy is just not a viable option."
