Michael Kanellos, the skeptical dude in the 60 Minutes piece and the editor-in-chief of Greentechmedia, pointed his pocket camera at K.R. Sridar and asked all the questions 60 Minutes should have. Science journalism!
Here's my existential question: Energy is how we move and stay warm. Nothing is more important than fuel. We have fought wars over fuel, and will continue to do so. Considering the ENORMITY of the fossil fuel conundrum this planet faces, how is this video not front page news? This is a man, backed by $400 million from the most famous VC firm in Silicon Valley, claiming he just invented the holy grail. Why don't we care?
This is a huge deal, and not just for technology junkies and aspiring energy reporters.
"We knew what we were after. We were after the holy grail. And if we didn't get that we didn't care." --Sridar
Kanellos: "I heard you had backlog of a billion dollars in orders."
Sridar: "Uh, no comment on that."
