The Onion kicked off its first spoof of the TED Talks in its new series Onion Talks, and the subject is one that cleantech watchers will know dearly: cars that run on compost. If I saw this talk at a cleantech or sustainability conference, I would think it was real. Seriously. It’s so subtle.
All cleantech entrepreneurs and investors out there should watch it.
“Step 1, devise an idea for a car that runs on compost. Step 2, create the car. We’ve already done step 1. We’re halfway there!”
“The economists say this isn’t feasible. Feasibility deals with implementation. I’m not involved with that.”
“Behind every great achievement is a visionary. I’ll be your visionary and you do the things I come up with.”
