Calling for Green Jobs Agenda Now

BlueGreen Alliance Calls for Green Jobs Agenda Now

Congress has an opportunity to put in place essential policies to create jobs, reduce carbon emissions and make America more energy independent. In its clean energy agenda for the remaining weeks of the 111th Congress, released yesterday, the BlueGreen Alliance outlines seven key policies it says could jump-start the clean energy economy and create hundreds of thousands of jobs across the country.

During a telephone press conference yesterday to release the agenda, UAW President Bob King said:

In the remaining weeks of 2010, creating jobs must be our top priority. Congress should move forward with policies that will create jobs for the millions of Americans who are still out of work. Critical to this job-creating effort is investments in green technologies because these are the jobs of the future—the jobs that will maintain our great American middle class. {read rest}
