I don't really expect the bank to speculate on more
expensive green building products. That's not the
business they're in. However, knowing that we have
limited resources, knowing that in the long run the more
expensive but more effiecient building materials are
superior, and knowing they cannot compete with the
petrochemical industry at market price, I would have
been willing to apply to the EPA (for instance) for a
grant, scholarship, low interest loan, anything to cover
the initial costs. I would have happily taken the time to
provide documented proof in the form of a grant or
scholarship application to the government.

Without their intervention in such ways the green
energy industry will not be able to compete with the
petrochemical industry.
