John Kerry On The $6 Trillion Energy Market

February 3rd, 2013 by  

Below is a video on John Kerry’s tremendous climate hawkiness (which he’s known for). As is often recommended, he focuses a lot of time emphasizing the economic and job benefits of clean energy and energy efficiency. He also emphasizes the fact that countries around the world are taking a quick lead on clean energy and other types of cleantech in order to lead the global economy in the coming century/centuries. We should be doing the same. “This $6 trillion market is worth millions of American jobs and leadership. And we better go after it,” John Kerry says. Anyway, watch the video (thanks to Peter Sinclair for sharing it, and thanks to Think Progress for uploading it):

This is part of an experimental “Sunday quickies” series in which we quickly cover stories we didn’t have time for during the previous week.

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in.

    Thanks for the post Zach. I really like John Kerrys’ position on the energy sector and climate change. I think he will be a fine Secretary of State and help rebuild the American Economy.

    • Yeah, he’s so pragmatic and to the point. And great at crossing the lines needed to speak to the crowd rather than the choir. Curious what he would have done as president if elected.

    Great answer. Proud to have him as our new SOS
