Greed to Green...

A lot is being spoken about the new energy policy of the US. This piece, in particular, is quite exhaustive. The potential of the "Green energy" movement is being compared to the Moon landing and Project Manhattan. If the US manages to achieve this - and I do think it will, it will manage to shake off the recession. For the rest of the world; India in particular, this is a golden opportunity. We used cellphones to bridge the digital divide - now we can use clean and sustainable energy to bridge the energy divide. Overall, India has made good use of bio gas, wind power - and especially to power its villages, there is no better bet.

If capitalism said, Greed is good (as epitomised in Wall street), enviro- capitalism says, Green is good.

Now to translate that potential into reality.
