Where Are the Green Jobs?
(The Root) — Proclaiming it “Innovation Week” at the White House, President Obama has ramped up his clean-energy agenda recently. From the Monday launch of a program designed to spark entrepreneurship in high-growth industries, to Thursday’s tour of labs at Penn State where researchers are developing more energy-efficient buildings, the president keeps talking the good talk on investing in new technologies to create jobs. It’s a familiar theme by now for Obama, who’s been pitching energy innovation since the 2008 campaign trail. His landmark Recovery Act put billions of dollars toward green solutions.
