Energy News:From a Reuters story today: "Venture capitalists in Silicon Valley have been searching for the next big thing in high-tech for years, but now many have switched to greener pursuits -- finding technology to help cut global warming. Although commercial success could take years, venture capitalists are pouring cash into solar power, fuel cells, wind energy, biofuels, new lighting microchips, 'smart' power grids, and other innovative energies. 'The best brains in the country are no longer working on the next pharmaceutical drug or the next Silicon Revolution. They want to work on energy,' said Vinod Khosla, a top venture capitalist in Silicon Valley."
