08/14/2009 - Investments in clean energy could be a central factor in revitalizing Ohio's faltering economy, according to a new set of studies.

More than 35,000 Ohioans already are employed in the clean energy economy, according to a study from the Pew Charitable Trusts. Ohio spokesman Tom Bullock says the jobs are real.

"There are new opportunities and Congress should keep that in sight as we approach the issues of clean energy, reducing reliance on foreign oil and curbing the pollution that leads to global warming. That is a problem that is more expensive the longer we wait."
