I Provoke a Response in Forbes on Green Recovery

All Posts No Comments

Google Alerts just, well, alerted me to this Forbes’ piece that ran on December 2. The authors are responding to my op ed on “Green Recovery.” Here’s a good excerpt of their counterattack:

Unfortunately, the emphasis of Murphy’s article was on the “illusionary” nature of a “green recovery.” The fact is, the economic and environmental benefits of a green recovery are visible now, and we have barely scratched the surface of its potential.

After further review, the play stands, notwithstanding their use of the phrase “The fact is.” If they had said, “At the end of the day,” things might have been different.
