Leadership on climate change and clean energy from ..... Google?

Google is stepping up its activities and announcements (by CEO Eric Schmidt) in the climate change / clean energy / "smart grid" interface, including announcing collaboration with GE (by CEO Jeffrey Immelt) on public policy issues and on the introduction of new technologies and software.

BTW, I note that Lynne Kiesling's "Knowledge Problem" blog is a good source of information and analysis on "smart" grid issues.
