Hope for environmental advocacy
Based on the names of those appointed by president-elect Obama to run agencies related to environmental issues we can be hopeful that the future looks bright and encouraging. One hope that two issues that are present in the minds of most americans: the economy and the environment can be put together. On the one hand solving many environmental problems requires new technologies and new ways of organizing the economy. The old paradigm of market driven economies is proven not to work is there is no government intervention and planning. But in order to have any government intervention and planing those in charge should have to be trained and experts in their area of study. Science has to be once again the driving source and force behind the changes accepted by our society.
