One small step for man..

Forty years ago today a voice bellowed out from the television set across America, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind", as a fuzzy, yet distinct shot of Neil Armstrong bounced across the screen. I can't help but get goosebumps watching this clip even today. But I also find myself alarmed. Do we need another escalating feud with Russia to inspire some serious technological advances? Just as they did 40 years ago, the world is watching to find out who will take charge in the race toward environment sustainability, emissions reductions and energy independence. In 130 days, nations will meet in Copenhagen to make some of these decisions. While the first man on the moon is impressive, wouldn't saving this planet really impress our children 40 years from now?
