The Morning After--What Obama Will Mean For Green Building And The Environment

I wrote a column yesterday on about the need for our next leader to take us from a red America and blue America to a green America.

Now we know that Obama will be the leader to take on that challenge. I was pleased that he spoke of our planet in peril in last night's acceptance speech, and of the opportunity for green jobs to help heal our damaged economy.

Environment and Energy Daily is reporting here that Obama will begin almost immediately working on these issues by going on a listening tour to explore "energy and environmental issues before Inauguration Day in an attempt to build momentum for its policies and legislative plans," allowing California to enhance its automobile standards, setting the stage for cap and trade and investing $15 billion per year to promote the deployment of renewable technologies.

The future looks distinctly brighter, and greener, this morning.
