John Doerr on Our Frightening Future

John Doerr is scared. John Doerr is angry. John Doerr isn't sure we're going to make it. And when John Doerr talks, everybody should listen.

But he's also become one of the world's leading experts on clean technology. Doerr is well respected, and known for his prescience. So now that I know that he's scared...I'm pretty scared too.

In this passionate talk from the TED conference, Doerr talks about the future of clean tech. The billions waiting to be made, and the technologies that are going to change the world. But he also talks about his 15 year old daughter, and her opinion of the situation: "Dad, your generation created this problem, you'd better fix it."

And unlike most dads, who would probably just get angry. John Doerr, being "the most influential venture capitalist of his generation," decided to use his influence.

The result is that Doerr is helping to spur a multi-billion dollar push behind clean technology. In the TED talk he speaks about bug-based bio fuels, the tremendous efficiency gains from Wal-Mart, and the importance of global warming legislation.

In the end though, he's still not sure we're going to make it.
