This is a new buzz in town of environment lovers. New buzz in the sense recently it has got some good hype or maybe I am listening for first time. Whatever it be, at least I am environment conscious. But why is it that people don't read or take interest in environment related stuff? Although it has become such an important issue now in the wake of global warming but still people aren't much interested. I see so less comment on Hubs like this. It is not good.

But never mind Whitney, keep writing. I am too an environment lover and have a blog dedicated to it. You will find my blog being mentioned in my profile. By the way, I too have post on the same topic but it is on my blog. Do read, maybe you will find it interesting.

In my oppinion Green technology should be the only things sold. Sadly it will never happen because capitalism makes people want to buy the cheapest. Socialism is even worse by not being able to reasearch those things.

The only way green technology will thrive is if we can get the economy flowing and people have major surpluses in money to invest in green technolgy.
