Green BoomThe last 15 years have ushered us into the internet age saving entire forests as people go from paper to electronic media.

With each passing day, it is clearer that the next 10-20 years will usher in a Green Boom – and with it, millions of new clean-tech jobs for those currently unemployed and struggling.

Already, we have witnessed the birth of the first “solar billionaire”: Zhengrong Shi, founder and CEO of Suntech Power, the world’s largest manufacturer of solar modules.

Scientists have told us that there is far more energy available from the sun’s light than we as a planet will ever need. All that’s left to overcome are a few technological and organizational hurdles.

It is only a matter of time before we stop exhausting the planet’s natural detoxification processes and give her a chance to heal. This leads us to the question, "Is it too late to help our planet? Are we past the point of no return?"

There is damage that could take thousands of years to reverse such as the rapid depletion of Earth’s tropical rain forests and receding ice caps.

With civilization's capitalistic mindset, creating wealth from green technology makes sense in offering a solution where everyone wins. The time is now. The US Government and the UN see eye-to-eye on this.

We will soon live in a world where companies make their money while helping the planet through green technology. It is truly a time to celebrate for every citizen on Earth!

Oh, whoops, you meant the trees are the planet's natural detoxification process!

Right on, Jason! I think there is great hope for us yet. And I never thought about it that way, that the earth is "detoxing" from our actions. I think we can thrive on solar energy, and other forms of clean energy too.

I tend to go very deep when I look at things! Actually I tnink that this green boom is much much more that saving forests since I do think that nature has an infinite power to detox an regenerate itself (when any species desapears it is much more than man's fault... It is evolution in nature itself...) What the green boom seems to me to me to be really aiming at is for us men to understand that we are part of nature and that the way to get it right is let ourselves move wiyh it.... Make us understand that we have aore own cicles like nature... History and internet is giving us a lot of material to make us note and understand that. That is the way to move towards the "oneness that people talk so much about nowadays... But onesss really means conviviality of differences and understanding that nature provides for sincronicities to accur...I do think it will be the end of morality and what "We should be like" and insted we will just be what we are...With rules to make it easier not to make it "perfect", meaning a predermined way to be perfect... Don't you think?

When you say there is damage that could take thousands of years to reverse, you are making two big assumptions.

The first is that it's truly damage, and not just change... the world changes substantially on a regular basis, and just because something is different doesn't always mean it's worse. It may turn out that the receding ice caps causes something else that ends up being incredibly beneficial, even if we can't see it right now.

The second assumption is that we have to wait for the world to fix itself. Just as we have changed the world much more rapidly than is natural in one direction, if we decide we need to, we will find a way to change it back in the other direction much more rapidly than it would move on its own.

By the way, one of the most interesting ideas for solar power that I've seen is having satellites concentrating and collecting it, then sending it down to a receiver on the ground... basically a HUGE laser. I have no idea whether that's ecologically safe or not, but at least it was different enough to be interesting.

I love your positivity! It is an amazing time to live, and thanks to humans like you speaking truth in the midst of insanity, humanity might be along a little while longer on this beautiful mother of a planet we are fortunate enough to call home. Earth doesn't need saving - it is us who is facing extinction. We are the solution, and that makes me smile.

Once people put their thoughts on and actions on positive things and stop polluting the air, water and so on than I think tie that with increasingly peopel being self sustainable, growing their own food, it won't take that long to fix our earth.
