If Lockheed isn’t over exaggerating about how far they’ve come along this could be huge. I know there are a lot of people who are not comfortable with the idea of a defense contractor taking the lead on something as important as clean energy, but I barely care how we get there as long as we get there fast and clean.
There’s an upside to having one of the giants of the Military-Industrial Complex being the point man on this: handling the oil companies.
What? You thought some rando start-up led by spunky post-docs was going to disrupt the energy market without getting ground under the heel of Cheney Inc.?
Clean energy is a knife fight. For the love of God, the Walton family is fighting rooftop solar panels.
Saving the world isn’t going to be easy.
