Warming to Houston as a leader on the environment
Imagine Rice's Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology and its Environmental and Energy Systems Institute, for example, working along with the University of Houston's petroleum and energy engineering programs, its Environmental and Energy Law program and its Sasakawa International Center for Space Architecture — which specializes in conservation in extreme environments — to focus some of their combined firepower on specific targets. We have the intellectual capital; we just need the will and strategy to properly invest it.
There is no reason that Houston, the center of the international energy industry, should not also be the international center for the efficient use of energy.
