5. Mahalo Peacetrain, We need a refresher course! "Analysis: President Obama's New Green Stimulus Law"

Great Green blast from the past, from your link..

"President Barack Obama signed into law Tuesday a bill that is truly green in more ways than one. It is not only the most ambitious and arguably much needed economic stimulus measure since the Great Depression but is also one of the most far-reaching pieces of environmental legislation in decades.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) contains $787 billion of investments and tax cuts. Of this sum over $70 billion is directed to green activities including increasing energy efficiency, electricity grid modernization, renewal energy, mass transit and high-speed rail, and environmental cleanup.

There is also over $7 billion to expand broadband in rural areas. These provisions can be considered as green measures as they would enable more telework, distance learning, e-commerce, and telemedicine. Virtual travel uses less energy, alternatives to driving and taking transit, which consume more energy, leads to greater amounts of pollutants and consume larger areas of greenspace."
