Green Technologies - A New Future Dawns

IT'S A revolution. It's going to take over your life: home, work, community. It's going to be the new way to live, to think and to act. Welcome to the days of going green.

Just like the agricultural revolution of the 18th century that spurred the industrial revolution into the 19th century, the green revolution has the pace and intensity to touch and change every aspect of living. In a nutshell it is a paradigm shift that scientist and environmental specialists say will save the planet and assure the continuation of the species and the survival of the planet.

This green revolution, spreading like wildfire, will create a green economy through the use of green technology, green thinking and green living. Yes, it is going to be a whole lot of green.

Governments, policymakers and think tanks worldwide assure us this is the future and that anyone not on the bandwagon is surely to lose out, not only on the advantages of the emerald wave, but also because unsustainable choices will lead to the inability to sustain livelihood or existence.
