Nathanael Greene, MS Biography

Title:
Director of Renewable Energy Policy, Energy & Transportation at the Natural Resources Defense Council
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“My New Year’s resolution is to start thinking big. This is harder than it sounds given that the technologies I think about, renewable energy technologies, each generally provide less than 1 percent of the markets that they serve (and the ones that provide more than 1 percent hydropower and ethanol from corn have limited potential for growth). But if we’re going to avoid catastrophic climate change, this has got to change and change big.”
