John Doerr: Seeking salvation and profit in greentech.

John Doerr of "Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers" starts an emotional speech about climate change by saying 'I dont think that we are going to make it'.

He then goes on to give an emotional but inspiring talk about the search that him and his associates have gone on in the search for solutions to the climate crisis.

"I don't think we're going to make it," John Doerr proclaims, in an emotional talk about climate change and investment. Spurred on by his daughter, who demanded he fix the mess the world is heading for, he and his partners at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers embarked on a greentech world tour -- surveying the state of the art, from the ethanol revolution in Brazil to Wal-mart's (!) eco-concept store in Bentonville, Arkansas. KPCB is investing $200 million in green technologies to save the planet and make a profit to boot. But, Doerr fears, it may not be enough.

It's time to get moving, infact its a long time past when we should have got moving, and still the vision is so limited, the scope of change expected so marginal.
