May be the "new willingness" is in direct result of this:
UN: climate change may cost $20 trillion

I guess that the U.S. Governemnt has realized that since they cant stop the momentum on this issue might as well join them and get a piece of the pie.

Alas there is profit to be made everywhere, especially in 'green' business.

This gives a chance for multi-national corporations to get their hands dirty and make some cash in the process.

What's sad is that they will do a sub-par job on any kind of energy efficient building etc as they're going to outsource it to China. And we all know the Chinese buy our waste and sell it back to us for a huge profit margin.

So the Chinese will be buying all our waste and carbon credits, yet continuing the destruction of their native habitat.

Sounds like a great solution.

It wouldnt surprise me if the bosses of the BIG Corporations saw the $20 trillion dollar reports and called Bush to let him know that they want in. I guess the "green" bussiness is going to overtake Big Oil.
