Pres-elect keeps talking the talk

President-elect Barack Obama released a video message online addressing climate change issues, including the new green economy. A text account at the New Energy World Network summed up his remarks this way: "Obama reiterated his pre-election New Energy plan to invest $150bn over the next ten years to catalyse private efforts to build a clean energy future."

The president-elect himself said:
This investment will not only help us reduce our dependence on foreign oil, making the United States more secure, and will not only help us bring about a clean energy future saving the planet, but it also will help us transform our industries and steer our country out of this economic crisis by generating five million new green jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced.

"Transform our industries." Well, it will be very interesting to watch Obama put his plan into action, and to see how it affects the home channel industry.
