He has several highly interesting ideas. Putting them into effect on a large scale could inspire a major paradigm shift.

I agree with TomCat, though the biggest paradigm shift would be to get corporate America to look beyond the temporary "cheap" status-quo. It seems whenever gas prices spike, these ideas become headlines... only to fall into obscurity when gas prices drop once more.

Seriously, if this were taken on as a national goal, like the Moon Race was in my youth, it has the potential to put this country back on the map as desirable place for future generations to live.
