Solyndra, Oklahoma, and Dolphins

Excellent article in the NYT on September 24th, 2011, on the ‘panic’ surrounding Solyndra.

The United States, which three years ago led the world in investments in clean energy, has now fallen behind China and Germany, which provide far more generous subsidies. The failure of a single company — and anyone who knows anything about transformative technologies knows there will be failures — is no reason to stop our efforts to catch up.

Agreed. In case you haven’t seen ‘A Dolphin’s Tale,’ Mr. Morgan Freeman has a wise saying (as he always seems to have in any movie he’s in.) He says, “You’re just hurt, you’re not broken.” If the ol’ US gave up at the first sign of failure, we wouldn’t have the lunar landing, that gymnast girl from Oklahoma with the busted ankle, Silicon Valley… nothin’. We’d suck.
