Thomas Friedman: The Power of Green
Thomas Friedman wrote a 4,000 word piece in yesterday’s New York Times Magazine on The Power of Green. I haven’t had a chance to start reading it but wanted to post the link so others who have some time can check it out. A lot of people are talking about it, and from what I hear its conclusion would have been a nice ending to my blog post from earlier today, showing that Americans will come through and take the actions required to carry the “green” movement long into the future, making it bigger than any of us have imagined. One quote from the first page:
Well, I want to rename “green.” I want to rename it geostrategic, geoeconomic, capitalistic and patriotic. I want to do that because I think that living, working, designing, manufacturing and projecting America in a green way can be the basis of a new unifying political movement for the 21st century…a new green ideology, properly defined, has the power to mobilize liberals and conservatives, evangelicals and atheists, big business and environmentalists around an agenda that can both pull us together and propel us forward.
