New dirty power plants are being make even today simply because its cheaper and easier to crate dirty power plants than to create green power plants. Another problem is the “NIMBY’s” (not in my back yard) These people do not want wind turbines in their town because they are ugly.

We do need laws that put a price premium on dirty power plants so that the scale can be tipped in favor of green energy. We also need some anti NIMBY laws because we can’t roll out millions of wind turbine towers if people can say they don’t like the way it looks or whatever their complains are.

You don’t like that wind turbine? Well I don’t like smog, acid raid, pollution and I really don’t trust big business to ever do the right thing, unless they have to.

Green investment has the potential to create huge returns and a new wave of green collar jobs. While the market is still small, there are already thousands of companies who are taking advantage of this opportunity and reaping the benefits because of it. Take the website http://www.greencollareconomy.com for example. They have a directory of thousands of companies who are seeing great ROI and are adding people to the workforce. There is also a slew of resources for people and business owners who want to do more research. I suggest readers take a look and learn more about this growing trend.
