Siemens Energy counters the current rise of unemployment by contracting a $50 Million wind turbine plant in Hutchinson, Kansas, creating about 400 new jobs. Unfortunately, the state legislature also approved construction of a coal-fired electricity plant, the leading source of today's carbon dioxide emissions.

While Siemens presents a strong initiative, greater collaborations would be required to provoke less "green politics," and more of a green impact on our society.
