"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy -sun, wind and tide. ... I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."
~ Thomas Edison to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone (1931)
