What will planet Earth be like when my nieces are my age? That’s a question which I grapple with often. A week ago, fulfilling a campaign promise, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. is withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.
Regardless of where you stand on this action, the accord itself, global warming, and other related matters we’ve all heard about and debated in recent times, can we all agree that we want our planet’s air, water, and soil to be as clean as reasonably possible?
That’s a key word, is it not? What is “reasonable”? So many questions and we went looking for answers. Irrespective of your stance on the U.S. departure from the Paris climate accord, we found this: there are literally thousands of U.S. governments, at all levels, bar none, investing in solutions, services, equipment designed to benefit the environment.
Some of these solicitations we pinpointed are extensive in scope, others could be considered modest in their potential results. Regardless, point of fact is that participation in the accord, or not, we identify pertinent solicitations every single day, multiple bids per day.
Climate protection, caring for the environment, pollution reduction, etc., cover a broad spectrum of points and the responses are enormously varied.
As part of our research, we have noted an impressive total, even to the most skeptical, of public sector requests, include solicitations involving:
- Hazardous waste
- Greenhouse gas
- Litter control
What about the data? We drilled down the data from the past five years, and isolated the relevant bid requests so far in 2017. Our findings:
Sample active bids / RFPs
Climate, Environment, Pollution, etc…
In summary, it’s our position that governments in the U.S. are continuing existing programs and taking steps to begin implementation of programs designed to address the climate, environment, and pollution. Like most Americans, my nieces and I are thankful.
