Analysis

The shift to green energy and an energy optimized future is essentially a technology shift.  The United States has led every single technology shift in the past 100 years and it is reasonable to expect that the United States will lead this shift too.

While some nations, through strong subsidies and energy policy, have implemented Renewable Energy (RE) and energy efficiency measures in advance of the United States, the mass adoption required to combat climate change will need solutions that make both economic sense (i.e. so people in China and India will buy it too), and be scalable (with costs decreasing with increasing scale).

The United States is the one country that has a proven, 100+ year record of inventing and delivering massively adoptable technologies that have fundamentally changed how the people of our planet live.
From the can opener, to the telephone, the solar cell, air conditioning, liquid rocket
fuel, the digital computer, the transistor, the mobile phone, lasers, the Integrated Circuit; LEDs, LCD displays, the TCP/IP network protocol, compact florescent lamps, and GPS technology to just name a few, it has been the United States that has consistently led the way, as it will with Green Energy; which represents the greatest economic opportunity in the 21st Century.
