Source: "The Missing Link to Renewable Energy." TED2012. Mar. 2012. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote from MIT scientist Donald Sadoway means that we cannot ultimately solve America's energy crisis using the means that people often suggest -- conserving energy, drilling for more fossil fuels, or starting wars with other countries to take their oil. Rather, we need to work together to invent a new solution to solve our energy issues. The quote has a hopeful tone, as Sadoway is saying that America has done this before, and can do it again. The quote is from Sadoway's 2012 TED Talk about the necessary invention we need to solve the energy crisis: large-scale batteries that store renewable energy.
