Die Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise wird die eine oder andere grüne Initiative erstmal auf Eis legen, trotzdem wird die Zukunft so grün aussehen wie nie zuvor. Während Banken um ihr Überleben kämpfen und die Multis schneller ihre Mitarbeiter entlassen, als man das Wort Abschwung aussprechen kann, planen die Keyplayer dieser Erde – von der Regierung Obama´s bis hin zur Chinesischen Regierung – ihren Führungsanspruch nach der Rezession mit Nachhaltigkeitsstrategien zu behaupten und auszubauen, inklusive dazugehörigen neuen Umweltgesetzen und neuen Vorschriften.

Nachfolgend ein Auszug einer Ansprache Obama´s an den Kongress am 24. Februar diesen Jahres:
“We know the country that harnesses the power of clean, renewable energy will lead the 21st century. And yet it is China that has launched the largest effort in history to make their economy energy efficient. We invented solar technology, but we’ve fallen behind countries like Germany and Japan in producing it. New plug-in hybrids roll off our assembly lines, but they will run on batteries made in Korea.

Well, I do not accept a future where the jobs and industries of tomorrow take root beyond our borders, and I know you don’t, either. It is time for America to lead again.

Thanks to our recovery plan, we will double this nation’s supply of renewable energy in the next three years. We’ve also made the largest investment in basic research funding in American history, an investment that will spur not only new discoveries in energy, but breakthroughs in medicine, in science and technology.”

“Legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy in America. That’s what we need. And to support that innovation, we will invest $15 billion a year to develop technologies like wind power and solar power, advanced biofuels, clean coal, and more efficient cars and trucks built right here in America.

Mainly because creating a more sustainable economy is not an option, but a necessity. So, while banks are crumbling and multinationals are laying off people faster than you can say downturn, every keyplayer – from the Obama administration to the Chinese government – plans to dominate the post-recession economy by going sustainable, including a heavy dose of rules and regulations.

From President Obama´s address before congress on feb 24:

    May Tyler grow up in a world free of polluted air and slimy rivers. And may it be, in part, because of your success.
