Rev. Jesse Jackson on Jobs
Civil Rights Activist
A green economy is not an abstract concept. It is already starting in places where leaders understand that the right solutions lead to job growth and give America an edge in a forthcoming multitrillion dollar global market. Some reports estimate that a clean energy industry can provide 3.2 million jobs. As just one example, since initiating its clean energy plan, Assembly Bill 32, California has added 500,000 green jobs.
Even now, the only sector of the economy that has seen job growth during the recession is the green job sector. As the green economy continues to expand around the world, countries that don't make those "green" choices will be left out. Time is of the essence
