The State of the Green Union

It's the Green Economy, Stupid

Like a lot of Americans, I watched the State of the Union Address by President Obama tonight wondering what it would mean for me, my family, and for all of us. Plenty of folks on all sides of the political spectrum have been saying that Obama has gotten things wrong when it comes to issues like the environment and the economy. Some feel that he has gone too far while others feel he hasn’t done enough. Whatever your party, I hope we can agree that great things are possible if we set our mind to it and work together. And we need great things to happen. Millions of people are still out of work, and a great many businesses remain uncertain of their future. For all of the challenges that we face though, we can meet these challenges and emerge stronger than ever. We can both boost the economy and help the environment, with green businesses large and small making it happen.
