Abundance of Energy at Blue Planet Summit, Day 1

We're attending the Blue Planet Summit along with about 60 0thers who've been invited, and we have organizer Henk Rogers' permission to blog about the event. But we won't do that until we can do it justice -- hopefully before the weekend is out. In the meantime, stories in the Advertiser and Star-Bulletin on keynote speaker Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and his assessment of the impact subsidized polluters have on our economy is must reading.

For Summit attendees who may be visiting this blog who aren't familiar with ocean thermal energy conversion technology, click on the Townsville, Australia website for an OTEC primer. It's a good place to start and an example of what Hawaii could be doing to advance this base-load technology in the islands.
