"There is a time when panic is appropriate response"

John Doerr , speaker at TED recently after surveying the Green inniatives around the globe said, "There is a time when panic is appropriate response...I don't think we're going to make it... it's time to be concerned!"

Spurred on by his daughter, who demanded he fix the mess the world is heading for, he and his partners at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers embarked on a greentech world tour -- surveying the state of the art, from the ethanol revolution in Brazil to Wal-mart's (!) eco-concept store in Bentonville, Arkansas. KPCB is investing $200 million in green technologies to save the planet and make a profit to boot. But, Doerr fears, it may not be enough.
