I'm not saying high-efficiency furnaces will solve all our economic or environmental challenges, but imagine if a stimulus package prioritized American-made energy efficiency and investment in renewables.
Here is a path for desperately required short-term stimulus that also will help in meeting our desperate need to change our course: Stimulate the economy. Save money. Help stop Global Warming. Works for me.
Our companies are not in the energy business, but both of them are making substantial investments in energy efficiency and clean power, not just to be good corporate citizens but because it's good for the bottom line.
