ABSTRACT
This article suggests that just like the housing and technology bubbles that have burst as of 2008, the next economic bubble to burst will be an environmental one. The article argues that the venture capital and government funding for such green initiatives as the development of biofuels, utilization of wind power, and reduction of emissions will not be sustained.
