Energy or Economics

I don't know why people like Vinod Khosla who are not professional energy experts by experience or training (those would be people with training in mechanical, chemical, nuclear or general energy engineering training) get themselves involved in leading investments on energy companies. Some basic training in energy conservation and energy systems, of the sort chemical engineers receive, or employing people who do have such knowledge, on a routine basis, would be minimally necessary in organizing leadership in such ventures. (See "Khosla's Conspiracy," in The Wall Street Journal.)
