Innovation : Baking a Cake for America

David Muchow, the President and CEO of SkyBuilt Power, shared an article of his with me in which he lays out his vision of how the U.S. can foster green innovation.

Entitled "How to Bake the Green Technology Cake: The Missing Key to Technology Innovation," the article analogizes the process of getting an invention from conception to marketplace to that of baking a cake.

Prof. Baruch Fischhoff offers some advice for senior management:

The earthquake and tsunami in Japan have forced an international spotlight on nuclear energy and its risks to society.

Conflicting reports and leadership responses about what exactly is going on with Japan’s nuclear reactors have cast a cloud of uncertainty over the situation.

Baruch Fischhoff, a world-renowned risk communication expert at Carnegie Mellon University, has worked on nuclear power issues intermittently since the 1970s.

"I have met many dedicated, talented, hard-working individuals in the nuclear energy industry," he said.

"However, as an entity, the industry does a terrible job of communicating with the general public — both in hearing its concerns and conveying credible responses."

To some extent, he says, it reflects a feeling that the industry can proceed without public consent — or the belief that the public is too irrational to sustain a dialogue.
