The only way to grow an industry, once in start mode here in the U.S. until stopped by special interests seeking the meme's needed to gather a following who parrot them, is to finally have those investments in economic growth promised when changing to the so called free market capitalism, which hasn't and won't be brought, certainly didn't go to those who actually do the labor since implementation with the stagnated wages and benefits. Thus that only leaves the government, us, to invest heavily in that growth which will bring on those private investment, finally. Time to take back the huge wealth gained by these free marketers over the past couple of decades and have that pay for the infrastructure's and R and D they need to exist, not the masses paying for as they have, and to once again grow an innovative economic industry, we were once doing in many area's, with an innovative workforce of intelligent trades as well as intelligent forward looking entrepreneurs, not bottom line only moguls and investors!
December 10, 2011 - The opportunity to pull Michigan out of its economic slump and deal with climate change is right in front of us.
"Michigan is one of the key places on earth where we can turn this around," said Peter Sinclair, an award-winning graphic artist, illustrator, animator, long-time environmentalist and blogger of Climate Crocks.
"[Green technology] can become the spear point of a major industrial revolution more impacting than the computer revolution."
He spoke recently at the Kalamazoo Nature Center about the effects of greenhouse gases (GHG) on the natural cycles of the earth and what we can do about it.
Millions of young people prepared for jobs in the emerging green technology could make a huge difference on our world in much the same way that young people were inspired by President Kennedy's call to put a man on the moon, said Sinclair.
"We need that kind of national mission now!" said Sinclair who contends that green technology can help the planet and create a new, green economy.
Many people fear that any change from our current fossil fuel economy will mean that we will have to live in caves, candlelight and be without cars. Many detractors and non-believers in climate change play on that fear, too. Here, too, the reality differs from the rhetoric. read more>>>
