Last quote by Bertrand Piccard

Today, if you want to have growth, if you want employment, if you want profits, you should not offer to the customers what you already have, you have to offer something better, you have to offer something more efficient, you need to build new infrastructure for the country. So in that sense, if you want to make America great again, you have to go to renewable energy and clean technologies. There's a small start-up in France that is storing heat up to a thousand degrees in ceramics, there are new systems to desalinate water with solar power.feedback
