Can green energy and carbon offsets help us with our national deficit?

    Good question, Sadie.  Anything that helps our economy may potentially help with our national deficit, but I think it is important to understand how extremely large our countries debt is.  In 2009, it was 12 trillion dollars (or 12,000,000,000,000).  Even a multi billion dollar industry couldn’t put much of a dent in that kind of debt.  So, while green energy may save us money in the long run, as well as save our planet, it probably won’t go too far in repaying our national deficit.

    Hope this helps!
