Gorbachev Pushes for Solar Energy in San Antonio

Associated Press/March 30, 2009

Former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev is in Texas pushing solar power as the "best hope" of delivering electricity to the poor and helping the environment.

Gorbachev appeared in San Antonio on Monday for the International Petrochemical Conference. He called the oil industry a key stake holder in turning the tide against greenhouse gases.

Gorbachev is founder of Green Cross International, an environmental organization that also released a global report card Monday on solar energy and development. Germany led all countries with an A-minus, while the U.S. was given a C-plus.
