“Green technology” or Clean technology is the application of the environmental sciences to conserve the natural environment and resources, and by curbing the negative impacts of human involvement. Our innovations have helped move the world from the industrial age to the information age. Today, at the beginning of the 21st Century, we must step forward to help solve the climate and energy crises and protect our environment. By using our local ingenuity, entrepreneurship, and creative talent, we can create solutions that change the course of global events. By capitalizing on the innovation in our community, we can create thousands of new jobs, grow city revenues, expand our local economy, and demonstrate how deploying clean and green technology is fiscally responsible. Without Clean Technology innovation, communities will become more polluted, the effects of global warming will increase, and our consumption of fossil fuels will continue our dependency on foreign oil. Thus, we can lead the nation in becoming more energy efficient, producing and using electricity from clean renewable sources, creating green buildings, diverting waste from landfills, creating greener street systems, delivering recycled water, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
