Travis Bradford, MBA Biography

Title:
Founder and President of the Prometheus Institute
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“The $50 billion global PV industry is fast approaching a critical juncture in its history. Buoyed by climate change, national security concerns and slowing productivity in traditional, fossil fuel-based power generation, PV has emerged over the last 20 years as an economically and environmentally sustainable source of energy…

As North America prepares to enter the worst recession since the Great Depression, the ability of its economy to survive this financial malaise will be inextricably linked to the development of a dynamic PV industry.”
