Thomas Edison on renewable energy: "I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy"

Thomas Edison on renewable energy:

"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind and tide. ... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."

The quote can be found on Wikiquote.

I always thought Edison was a genius and you have proved it.  I was unaware of that quote.  What a forward thinker and too bad it has taken so many so long to catch up.  Thanks for sharing an important quote.
