Although we primarily focus on what President Obama and the rest of the United States are doing about the troubled economy, and push for green jobs, we sometimes forget the rest of the world is in a much similar situation.

Although we primarily focus on what President Obama and the rest of the United States are doing about the troubled economy, and push for green jobs, we sometimes forget the rest of the world is in a much similar situation. To remind us of that fact is a meeting this week of over 100 environmental ministers who plan to hammer out a solution to solving green issues even when the economy is failing. The United Nations Environmental Program is pushing for these topics to be made priority, suggesting that environmental problems may be far more important than what happens on Wall Street. Although the focus of the meeting is to develop something called a “Green New Deal”, the gathering of leaders has also helped move over 190 nations to agree on negotiating a new global deal by the end of the year which is meant to follow the Kyoto Protocol, and will help limit carbon dioxide in more countries around the world. I wonder if any of these crazy ideas will be brought up in the discussions?Photo credit: Dan Riedlhuber
