06/16/2009 - The U.S. clean energy economy is poised for explosive growth.
Jobs in the new clean energy economy grew at nearly two and a half times the rate of U.S. jobs overall between 1998 and 2007. These jobs included all kinds of workers—blue collar and white collar, technical and clerical—and more than 68,200 employers in all 50 states. In fact, some of the most impressive growth was in states where traditional industries have languished.
This critical sector is poised for explosive growth. With a nationwide market-based system that boosts the development of alternative energy sources like wind and solar and reduces both our dependence on foreign oil and global warming pollution, we can speed the clean energy economy and create the American jobs of the future.
