Hillary Clinton calls for US to become World's 21st-Century Clean Energy Superpower

United States should make efforts to become the world's 21st-century clean energy superpower, said former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday. While speaking during the annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas, Clinton praised North Nevada for selecting a $5 billion Tesla automobile battery plant to work in recent years to emerge as a leading state in solar, wind and geothermal energy projects.

It was the first day of the National Clean Energy Summit when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton largely focused her speech on climate change.

Clinton wasted no time when she got a chance to speak at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and began to criticize climate change deniers.

"Sea levels are rising, ice caps are melting, storms, droughts and wildfires are wreaking havoc. Thirteen of the top 14 warmest years have all come since 2000", said Clinton. She said that governments need to learn from Nevada which has quintupled its renewable energy capacity since 2008 by making efforts for clean energy.

Clinton added that Nevada has been able to make a breakthrough because it invested in green energy, solar energy, geothermal and wind energy.

Clinton also said that it is wrong to believe that turning to renewable energy from fossil fuels will increase unemployment rates. She said all that America needs to become the clean energy superpower for the 21st century is to make strict choices, the smart investment in infrastructure, technology and environmental protection.
