Jerry Brown Rocks It At Intersolar North America (VIDEO)

July 16th, 2013 by  

Intersolar has put together a great video of an excellent keynote address by California governor Jerry Brown at Intersolar North America. Jerry, a clear cleantech champion, really rocked it. Check out the video here:

Notably, while California does lead the country in solar power capacity (as Jerry implied), it actually comes in #6 among states for solar power per capita, and #6 for solar power per GDP.

Jerry really lays into underperforming countries in his speech — gotta love that. If it were a country, it would actually rank #17 for solar power per capita and #19 for solar power per GDP. Not in the top 10, but still much better than the large majority of countries… and states.

Jerry’s call to action on the serious need to address global warming and climate change is certainly admirable. We could use a lot more of that!
