Freshly Exhumed writes “Drawing on new data released Wednesday by the National Snow and Ice Data Center that the Arctic ice pack has melted to an all time low within the satellite record (video), NASA climate scientist James Hansen has declared the current reality a ‘planetary emergency.’
As pointed out by Prof. David Barber from the University of Manitoba, ‘The thaw this year broke all the records that we had previous to this and it didn’t just break them, it smashed them.’
So, not sure why your mainstream press isn’t covering this story? ‘It’s hard for the public to realize,’ Hansen said, ‘because they stick their head out the window and don’t see much going on.’ Thankfully, some people are noticing, as Bill McKibben’s recent Rolling Stone article, Global Warming’s Terrifying New Math has gone viral.”
Saving money and making money online certainly sound like good reasons for going green. You can look good and be good all in one fell swoop with green ideas and selling green products online. As a result of green business, both our green environment and green economy will result in improved sustainability.
You can save money using less energy and fewer resources in the short and long term. As the price of oil goes up and up over the course of time, the cost of transported goods, yours and the ones you purchase, will go up accordingly. Historically, every time the cost of energy has increased, no matter what the source of energy has been, economies have struggled. It happened in ancient Egypt, and it happens today. By using fewer of those resources, you insulate yourself against rising costs, and put yourself in a position to become the low-price option when the operational costs of your competitors go up more sharply than yours.
If there were a way to for people to make more money and be environmentally friendly without a huge amount of effort, most people would do it. By successfully marketing your product or service as environmentally friendly, or even making the changes in your operations public, it is simply a matter of not having time to educate them on how to successfully leap into the green unknown. While there’s more involved than changing the color of your label, it probably isn’t nearly as hard as you might think to start a green-focused business. In fact, this is the easiest time in history to start a well-conceived green startup with a minimum of financial investment. The leverage available today is due to a new generation of business-management tools, many of which are available online, that can help you.
