Clean Energy Creates Jobs

Researchers report that $150 billion for clean energy can boost economy.

There may be a clean way to boost the economy and improve unemployment rates. According to recent studies by environmental groups and research institutes, the two latest clean energy provisions and acts seen before Congress can help generate $150 billion for clean energy, thus creating 1.7 million jobs. Specifically, the new provisions incorporated into the American Recovery and Investment Act (passed in February) combined with the American Clean Energy and Security Act (now before Congress) could help supply 870,000 of the 1.7 million jobs for low-income and less-educated citizens. Two reports, one made jointly by the Center for American Progress and the Political Economy Research Institute and another by Green for All and the Natural Resources Defense Council, posit that the increase in jobs and employment should raise earnings for low-income workers by two percent. Now wouldn’t that be a clean change?
