do we convince industry, particularly defense industries,
to convert to new renewable technology?

there is an opportunity to save money or make it,
capitalism will move us in that direction. When
you have an option that's better on the bottom line
and better for the environment, then older technologies
will become obsolete.
there are many corporate leaders who are launching
renewable divisions (Shell, BP, Sharp and GE), and
others becoming large customers of green power (Toyota,
Body Shop, Patagonia).
economic conversion of defense industries to civilian
needs is a challenging process, but has been done
many times before. If you look at the skill sets
of these firms: high tech, systems integration and
materials fabrication these are the same
requirements for the engineering of electricity
generation systems (solar, wind, geothermal, biomass,
hydro, and ocean energy) and high voltage transmission
of employers and employees is important as well,
so when an old industry becomes obsolete, they can
move swiftly into the new field.
