• Ways the U.S. can regain the No. 1 position in clean energy investment
• Applied Materials’ support of a national Renewable Electricity Standard
• Why China is winning the race on green manufacturing
• What the U.S. must do to capture green manufacturing
• Why the U.S. hasn’t transitioned to a clean energy economy
• Applied Materials’ support of legislation to put a price on carbon
• An Applied Materials survey that found 75% of American's agree increasing renewable energy is a top priority
• How comprehensive climate and energy legislation will bring the U.S. closer to regaining its position as global clean energy technology leader
