Orange County Becoming Nation’s Next ‘Cleantech Hub’? - Central Florida News 13

Just thought I would share. We need more positive threads on here, even though I'm sure it will be attacked by negative posts

No, it's not. There is a question mark in the title of the story, indicating there is a possibility something may happen.

For someone that constantly complains about the low pay scales and crappy jobs in Orlando, you would think a bit of possibly positive news would be a reason to, well, be positive for a change.

I appreciate the thread and the article. I do think despite the critics that Orlando is trying to diversify the market and raise the payscale and intellectual component of the workforce. Thank you for sharing this.

I think this is a great piece of news and well worthy of posting about. Its ashame people cant embrace good news when we get it instead of focusing on the negatives. Had it been in Seminole county you can bet all the nay sayers would have jumped all over it.....lol

Why dont you tell us the positives of a study that has not been implemented and has no funding?

Wow. Yet another "should be obvious" moment.

Several positives to be gleaned:

1) Someone is taking a hard look at how to diversify the Orlando economy, something people on this board whine about all day.

2) The plan is workable and shows promise if implemented and properly presented to government officials.

3) It's making the news at all.


I'm sure if we all use our critical thinking skills we can come up with some more positives from the article?
