This opinion piece discusses the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, which invested $787 billion into the U.S. economy. It urges the need for some of that money to be routed into resilient natural systems. The author defines natural systems as wetlands, forests, and river floodplains, and discusses how they protect against environmental degradation such as floods, drought, and wildfires. A U.S. green infrastructure initiative is called for.
