CERAWeek: The drinks are on NTR's Jim Barry

Jim Barry, CEO of NTR, finalized the sale of one of its business units, Airtricity, for about $2 billion early this morning while most of us were sleeping. That includes some Texas wind projects. Not a bad way to start the morning.
While speaking at CERAWeek this morning, Barry discussed the energy industry’s use of resources in general and its demand for water in particular:
“If we’re going to pay more than lip service” to greater prosperity in the developing world, we’re going to have to “have a paradigm shift in how we use our resources,” Barry said.
“On Water: Within 10 to 15 years the energy industry will be tainted with water the way it’s tainted with carbon today.”
