As the first decade of the new millennium comes to a close, the rush to name the current decade has begun (as mentioned in a New York Times editorial). While looking back proves informative, we at 2nd Green Revolution prefer to look to the future. What will the next decade be known as? We would like to propose that the coming decade be know as “The Decade of Sustainability”. Several reasons come to mind.
1. UNESCO – Decade of Educating for Sustainable Development (from 2005 to 2014)
2. State, national, and international governments targeting a goal of 20% renewable energy by 2020
3. The upcoming Copenhagen meeting and potential agreement
4. A burgeoning electric car market
