Do we need green tech companies if we as a country want to be green?

    Absolutely. Green tech companies are responsible for most of the progress made in expanding our use of renewable energy and improving our infrastructure. The work these companies do is crucial to limiting carbon emissions, because without new fuels, emissions stay the same. Fortunately, green tech companies are on the rise in recent years, especially in environmental hotspots like the Bay Area. I encourage everyone to support them if you can.

    Though I agree almost entirely with the above answer, it is important to note that green companies are NOT on the rise right now…in fact, many green companies (esp, in the bay area) are slashing jobs due to the recent economy. OptoSolar put thier plant construction on hold, SunTech said that it laid off 800 people, or 10 percent of its staff. Furthermore, Day4 Energy, GT Solar, Emcore and Advanced Energy have also announced layoffs.
