A green mission for NASA

Dear Editor:

The Rocky Mountain Institute recently held a seminar on “green” energy productions in Aspen.

It was a good meeting thanks to Emory Larns’ presentation. But, the discussions were disappointing. The “experts” seem to agree that technology can create cleaner fuels. How about “technology” to kick the oil and coal addictions?

Why not change NASA’s mission to finding alternate “green” energy. They spend $25-plus billion a year creating space junk. Before they go back to the moon and on to Mars, NASA’s vast talents should lead us out of the “energy maze” ” NOW! The moon and Mars can wait, but America can’t for new clean energy.
