Obama Uses Humor To Make A Point on Fallon

How China Is Dominating America In Clean Tech

Say what you will about China, and there is a lot to say, but today in clean tech innovation it is owning America. Why is this significant? Well because America is America or at least was. America used to be the standard of innovation, used to be the trailblazer in everything across the board. That image of America still has traction in the world which is why people still flock to America for education even though we’ve fallen to “average” in the world rankings. The fact is we used to be the top creators and innovators in the world. After...
