Is NEW GREEN = the CLASSIC GREEN?

Yarite - stands for "Yeah right?" - is a very inquisitive fictional character

Utopian - A part of me that believes everything is possible. Based on the new science... everything is a matter of probability... and this part of me believes that I can create this probable future - with the right intention and right attitude.

Yarite: NEW GREEN? what the heck is that?

Utopian: Mother earth... since the dawn of human kind everybody loved her always... respected her for her nature/behaviour, because many of her actions were unexplainable... all respected her out of fear and love - she is the most beautiful, known to mankind... and we still do love and respect her...

but slowly mankind started working with her... making certain assumptions on how she would respond and correcting their method of predictions to increase the probablity... mankind saw many other fellow earth dwelling species bite the dust - succumb to the forces of nature - this brought the notion of protecting oneself from mother's elements... guess what... innovation... when in dire need... you can do anything to survive... thus mankind still survives... found several ways to protect itself from the elements...

Somewhere along the history of great inventions... mankind ran into OIL... boy who in the world thought that will change the face of mother earth for centuries to follow...

OIL - is an amazing resource... gave the power to protect us from not only the elements but also from our own mankind... mankind acquired many habits from other species all along his history from sharing to fighting...

With this new power and a thought that "we know how mother earth works", there came this incerdible notion that mankind can not only protect itself from the elements but also CONTROL them!!

Mankind started doing funny things from here on... mankind fought amongst itslef to prove this point... many things happened... guess what... mankind thought they could control mother earth with their developed understandings of her... but eveytime they made a move... mother earth responded differently... until now it has always been a missed target...

recently after several attempts mankind started to believe that we just have to work with her... nourish her... respect her... inturn work with ourselves.. nourish ourselves... respect ourselves...

This notion grew not out of insecurity but out of hope.. that we can be in sink with mother earth when we work with her using the tools we have accrued so far in our history... it is possible... it is possible to use her forces for the good by respecting and acknowledging that she does have a force...

This is the new wave of love on mother earth... on ourselves... and thats the tag name NEW GREEN!!

Yarite: Jeez!.. all I asked was what does NEW GREEN mean... not for a thesis!! anyway... be precise and say what the heck is CLASSIC GREEN...

Utopian: Ever since mankind thought whatever he had for himslef - was for himslef and whatever his buddy had was also for himslef... they started trading... trading possessions... then some cool dude said we have got to have some common ground for trading... they came up with "money"... the look of money has had several revisions... recently its all in green... hence the CLASSIC GREEN.

Yarite: thanks for being short... now why in the world do you think these two greens could be the same when they stand for completely opposite notions...

Utopian: NEW GREEN is all about new opportunities... mankind has found that in respecting mother earth... nourishing her... loving her... there's lot of new tools to be invented... lot of new markets - avenues to be explored... lot of CLASSIC GREEN is one of the by-products....

This is not a hypotheseis... this is happening... take GE, they have their ECO Line products, take GM, they have their new line of ethanol vehicles.... take Walmart, they fixing their moral responsibilty with GREEN buildings and it makes economical sense too... change is happening and there are lot of ways to get back in track with mother earth... and along side mankind says "hey lets make some GREEN out of this GREEN"

Yarite: Huh!! interesting... now what the heck is a GREEN Building??
