Nathan asks why the Budget completely neglects the New Green Economy
January 28th, 2009 - 12:23pm
Mr. Speaker, yesterday's budget is what happens when the government fails to invest in the green economy of tomorrow. Not only did the government do nothing to create green-collar jobs, it axed what little funding did exist. U.S. President Obama gets it. There is more than $55 billion to transform their economy. There is cash for solar, wind and other renewables. From this government there is money for nukes and dirty coal. For those of us who realize that The Flintstones was not a documentary, this budget was an unmitigated disaster.
Why will the government not wake up and start to invest in the real economy of tomorrow?
