What's Next for the Green Economy II - The Sequel

Why the Midterm Elections Cannot Stop the Green Economy
Summary: 
Back when President Obama was elected in 2008 I wrote a blog post about "What's Next for the Green Economy". At the time we were in the midst of economic turmoil, and expectations ran sky high for what Obama would achieve, including action on climate change and the growth of the green economy, as well as turning around the entire economy. Now it's time for the sequel--Revenge of the Republicans. Another election has come with power switching hands, and the economy is still in rough water--I can't help but wonder once again what this means for the green economy. The more I think about it the more I see there is more than one answer to this question. If you're looking for the U.S. Government to take sweeping action on climate change, odds are things don't look good. But in other ways the prognosis for the green economy remains strong. Here's why.
