37 Million Green Jobs Are Possible

There is a reason to stay hopeful about the economy even though people across the country continue to get laid off. Last week, the American Solar Energy Society (ASES) released a detailed study on the reality of green jobs. It reports that up to 37 million jobs from renewable energy can be found in the United States by 2030. Of course, these jobs will only open up if the necessary leadership, research, development and public policy falls into place. For now, read the report here. And maybe you’ll be able to sleep a little easier tonight.

The idea of 37 million jobs is wonderful. But the pessimist in me wants to know who will these jobs go to? There are people out there who were not able to go to college for whatever reason. These people are just as deserving of a good job to support their families as a person who was able to go to school. I don’t think "on the job training" is a hand out and can only benefit our economy. The idea of these jobs gives such hope. It should be hope for everyone.
