Going green

November 2006
MEED: Middle East Economic Digest;11/10/2006, Vol. 50 Issue 45, p1
The article comments on the change of principles concerning environmental movements. Causes of the change include the search for clean fuel. The mid-term election success of the U.S. Democratic Party will give the environmental movement a political boost, but it is no longer the province of one particular party or pressure group. International oil companies are now the biggest investors in alternative energies.
