Sign O’ The Times?
I took this photo at Madrid International Airport yesterday: three major business/news magazines lined up in a row, all concerned enough with environmental issues to make the subject a cover story. I was intrigued enough to buy The Economist; it’s ‘Greening of America’ feature, apart from borrowing the headline from a Newsweek cover story of last year, essentially listed, albeit in much more detail, the same points I made this time last week, about how green policies are working their way upwards from the grass roots to the White House. The conclusion was optimistic:
“Whereas in Europe or Asia new ideas often flow from the centre to the regions, in America the states are the incubators of big shifts in policy. This means that change is coming – fast.”
