Renewable energy has been in the news lately, as the U.S. presidential candidates have been discussing their energy plans, and many other people have been talking about renewable energy, including T. Boone Pickens and Al Gore.

Yesterday, Bill Clinton weighed in with his own recommendations for what the U.S. government should do to promote renewables and combat climate change when he spoke at the National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas.

There’s a great summary of Clinton’s top 10 recommendations for cleaner energy here on Earth2Tech. Just a few of the measures he suggested were making improvements to the electrical grid, establishing a carbon cap and trade system, and renewing tax credits for producing renewable energy for the next six to 10 years.
