  1. This journal seems like it would be very interesting. I would venture to guess the publication would also highlight private sector businesses who are contributing to the emerging green economy. There are already many companies who are offering solutions to our environmental issues. The website http://www.greencollareconomy.com, for instance, has a directory of thousands of companies who are doing good by the earth and creating new sustainable jobs as well. I’ll be interested to see if this journal highlights some of these companies.
