Thomas Alva Edison Birthday...& Quote

According to Google, today (February 11, 2011) is the 164th birthday of Thomas Edison, American inventor, scientist & businessman who invented, among other things, the light bulb. I just want to observe this special occasion with one of my favourite quotations.

Edison said “I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait ‘til oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”

Smart dude, eh?


P.S. Ralph Nader said “The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.” Another smart dude, I reckon...
