I got an e-mail this morning from someone named Ben at the US State Department. (No, they weren’t looking for Naomi Wolf.) He directed me to a video they produced on the renewal of Pittsburgh. Turns out the city is doing a lot of innovative things to expand the green business sector—following through on President Obama’s campaign promise to grow the renewable energy grid while creating new jobs in the green collar sector.
Never let it be said that I’ve turned into a government shill (I only shill for Chelsea Green, darn it!)—but I actually like a lot of the things this administration is doing, and if we can help spread the word that the future is in green industry, all the better for the country, and the world.
