How can the Clean Economy be fostered and what is the potential?
In the midst of the ideological divergence and posturing in Washington, it is refreshing to see some clear numbers that point to positive impactful investment and jobs in the green economy.

In order to accommodate the 3 million iPads sold in 80 days and the proliferation of products such as smartphones, laptop internet connections, and new wireless devices such as Cisco’s coming Cius tablet computer running on Google’s Android OS, the amount of bandwidth available on the airwaves will almost be doubled.
