Response to Laxman (Reply #2)

3. Agreed and good quote, but keep in mind

I agree with you and the article that having the environment become a partisan issue is not a good thing -- like the quote says "Having policy areas where the parties can find common ground and agreement is essential for a vibrant and healthy democracy." And I recognize that green jobs are only one of many environmental issues.

That said, the quote also refers to "the long-term future of our nation's resources." This is a political economy issue as well as environmental. Resources controlled by whom? Used for what purposes? Conserved for what potential future purposes? It's good to be clear about these things.
