  1. Go for it, gang! The faster you (and all of us) learn the skills to go Green, that faster we can use those skills, and the faster we’ll get this country rolling the way we need it to.

    I don’t want to hear _any_ bank manager whining that they would love to loan money for Green projects but nobody can build the technology.
