Hot, Flat and Crowded. My lunch with Thomas Friedman.

Who? That's what I said when I was asked to attend this luncheon yesterday. Glad I went. Thomas Friedman is apparently hot shit in the business/global market arena. He's a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, who resides at the NY Times when he's not working on his best-selling books. He was on David Letterman and Good Morning America this week promoting his new book Hot, Flat & Crowded.

He gave a powerful argument for why America better get up off it's complacent ass and implement some energy policies to make green energy more affordable to the masses or step aside and let China take over our place at the head of the world table. Scary stuff. I am looking forward to reading the book!
