What is the New Green Economy?

Tonight, I was asked what does the New Green Economy look like?

My answer was in part that last week the old economy finaly died after an incredible run.

Now it is time for an economy that is built on sustainability, inclusiveness; about high quality green collar jobs -- real jobs here in the US, the kinds of jobs that can't be exported overseas. (That means installation, efficiency, and greater R&D.)

It's about prosperity as much as it is about the health of the people and the planet.

The new green economy is, ultimately, about investing in our future.

What does the New Green Economy mean to you?
