The article focuses on technology and highlights how some technologies like the internal combustion engine and electricity have largely remain unchanged from their inception. It points out that technology gets sophisticated, sleeker and more energy efficient with time. The work undertaken by the organization Union of Concerned Scientist (UCS) for the modernization of transportation and energy systems are pointed out. It also highlights how innovators should overcome political and industrial limitations and strive to work towards clean energy technologies for the betterment of the economy and environment.
