On the day that Al Gore was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on climate change, I was honored to welcome Icelandic President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson (pictured) to Los Angeles to announce the opening of the North American Headquarters of Iceland America Energy, a clean tech firm investing in geothermal energy throughout the continent. Their investment in clean energy will help our environment, and it will strengthen our economy by providing high paying jobs for Angelenos in the booming green industry.
