. >> [unintelligible] because they make the turbines very efficient and some parts come from china and others come from bolivia and russia. >> you make a great point. back in '84 we made the statement that there is no free lunch with alternative energy. there are other components that make it less renewable than we thought. i think we will find substitutes over time, but the limited nature of those two resources, nairobi in one and the chinese with the lithium ion battery, we will have some problems. >> but we've got to keep the lights on one way or another. >> the beauty of moving that direction today is that we have to keep the capacity moving forward. we have a great generation of young engineers coming forward today.

china and brazil that will expand their fossil fuel supply, so we've got to get to a clean energy economy. the only way to do that is invasion. >> name some of the technologies? >> well, the people doing the best work in that right now is in what's called arpa e, which is modeled after darpa. advanced research products/energy. their funding, for example, new photo sin thesis. it takes 1% of that sunlight. if you can double it to two, you've transformed bio fulls and made it much more efficient. that's a science problem and could probably be solved. >> we're going to rely on oil for quite a long time. when you were explaining the oil situation and new technology, it seemed to me you told me about two differing things. one group technology down the hall, cracking rocks. brute technology, beating the earth into submission if you will. and the very sophisticated 3-d seismic finding the oil with satellites, and what are the other technologies that come into this new world of oil exploration? not a douser with a stick any more. >> no. i think it's the kind of technological invasions tha

expect our next enemy to be china. this is part of the duality that seems to be so much part of history. do we need the duality? competition in the construction -- constructive sense. >> thomas edison said if you want to be successful, get a few enemies. competition and threats bring out -- for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. so, if you are going to have the great evil of and of hitler you need the great goodness of the west and churchill and chang kai shek and roosevelt to respond. >> this is highly readable but also a work of scholarship and you clearly are a scholar. i know people do not like to be described as intellectuals. they tend to think it in pews of their manhood. -- impugns their manhood. they were not thinking of the navi poets. nothing wrong with their manhood. how you were? not that long since the last major book which was the reagan book. but this required, it seemed to me, even more work. two countries. that is why the bibliography is enormous. notes are enormous. i am just compelled by it because it is so -- i am living back in one month

reason than you have countries like china and brazil will expand their demands. we've got to get to a clean energy in economy. we can do it. but the only way to do it is innovation. >> name some of the technologies? >> the people doing the best work right now i think is in -- modeled after darpa -- advanced research project agency. new photosynthesis technology -- when the sun goes down and it's a plan, 1% energy conversion. -- when the sun go down and hits a plant. you transform biofuels and agriculture. it is a science problem. it can probably be solved the we have to put money behind it and funded the best scientists and researchers. >> notwithstanding what bob says, we will rely on oil for quite a long time. when you were explaining the oil situation, it seems you told me about two different things. one technology, down the hall, cracking rocks, the other in beating the earth into -- and the sophistic 3 d seismic finding of oil with satellites. what other technologies come into this? it is not a douser with a stick anymore. >> it is the kind of technological innovations that rob
