More Green Jobs Data June 25, 2009 : 11:01 AM

According to the New York Times:

“Following on the heels of a study from the Pew Charitable Trusts last week, two more reports from a broad coalition of environmental groups and research institutes suggest that clean-energy investments have the potential to kick-start the economy and employ millions of workers -- particularly those at the lower end of the economic scale.”

“In a statement accompanying the release of the two reports -- one authored jointly by the Center for American Progress and the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; the other by the institute, the green jobs advocacy group Green For All and the Natural Resources Defense Council -- the researchers assert that a "$150 billion investment in clean energy could create a net increase of 1.7 million American jobs and significantly lower the national unemployment rate.””

It's no secret our economic crisis and the climate crisis and linked, and so are their solutions. We now know that the legislation to repower America will cost less that $175 per family.

The time for action is now.
