Eric Schmidt, CEO, Google
Note: New location
Would "Drill, Baby, Drill" be part of Google's vision for green energy? Yes, but not drilling for oil. CEO Schmidt says punching down into the Earth to capture natural and clean geothermal energy could help move the United States away from its dependence on petroleum. Google's new energy plan also calls for a bold move into solar and wind power. It would cost $2.7 trillion through 2030. However, Schmidt says it would generate $2.1 trillion in energy savings. And it would create hundreds of thousands of jobs. And help fight global warming.
