The debate in America over changing to a green economy does not seem to be slowing down. On one side, people think the problem of global warming is over exaggerated, not man-made or does not exist. On the other side, some urge that if we do not do something to fix our environment now we may lose that opportunity forever.
How this affects Americans seems to be generally misunderstood. Whether one believes in global warming or not, the fact of that matter is that the idea of a green economy can benefit many Americans. How? Government initiatives designed to provide incentive to Americans to purchase cleaner energy are already in existence are ever expanding.
For example, heating our homes is one of the bigger bills many of us pay for each year. This is of course especially true for those of us living in colder areas of the country. Updating or changing your heating system can drastically reduce the cost to heat your home each year. Summarily, cooling ones home during the warmer months is also a large cost. Cleaning filters of your air conditioners, as well as other effective measures can drastically reduce the costs of cooling your home or office. Additionally, government rebates often help to pay for these changing are that can be done usually by plumbing, heating and air conditioning companies.
In short, no matter what you believe about global warming there are many opportunities available on the market for you.
Getting cleaner energy helps you save money over the long run and can even make you qualify for other types of tax breaks. And for those who do not believe in global warming it will at the very least make your environment healthy, even in your own home.[ad_2]
