Environment = Economy
A poll shows that 51% of Americans find the economy more important than the environment while 45% find the environment more important then the economy. I believe that the economy is important, but I believe that the economy goes with the environment. We need to start realizing that building green jobs helps the economy. Reducing our emissions saves us money from what we would be spending on the problems of climate change will do. I do still believe some environmental policies have absolutely no effect on the economy if they are implemented correctly. Like a carbon tax implemented too quickly can hurt the economy, but a slow carbon tax will have no effect on the economy except the increase in revenue that can be spend on hospitals and schools, and it would lower pollution and give an example to other countries that you can do environmental policy's and boom the economy.
