Mashable's Pete Cashmore: solving the energy problem requires smart technology

Pete Cashmore, founder and CEO of digital news site Mashable, says climate change — specifically the energy issue— is the biggest problem facing our generation. It's also a big business opportunity, which means there are "many many smart technologists working on how do we find sustainable solutions."


Cashmore says it's "incredibly important" that young technologically savvy entrepreneurs help to solve the issue of finding cheaper and cleaner energy.  And fortunately, he says, "there are many many smart people working on this" to discover "solutions for sustainable energy."
