In the below video, trusted green building consultant, industry insider, and author Jerry Yudelson predicts nothing but good things for the development of green building during the Obama administration. He states that under Obama, green building will become "a permanent part of the economic, cultural and financial landscape."

MNN's tech blogger, Karl Burkart has already reported that according to the U.S. Green Building Council, 2009 will be a banner year for green building despite economic woes. After months (even years) of news forecasted by the Bad News Bears, it's great to hear that this burgeoning, extremely vital industry will find success this year and in years to come.
