I find the Iceland effort very exciting because I'm a pro-technology
person and I think that ultimately we'll need advanced technologies to
solve our problems. It would be very, very difficult for us to address climate
change by doing with less, so I think we're going to have to have
advanced technologies. And it's exciting to see someone experimenting
with that, essentially saying, "We're going to try to go to 100%,
you know, environmentally friendly energy system." And we will learn from
their experience. So we're going to gain from this effort that
they're making, so I'm very positive about it.
to understand they're in a unique situation though. They have vast
amounts of renewable energy available to them and a very small population.
There's no way today we can do what they're doing, but I think
it's useful for us and it's very exciting to see them try to make a
sustainable, environmentally friendly energy system in that country. So
that's my view.
