Green Job Report

Check out press coverage of the green job report, which the Sierra Club helped role out.

It is being released in cooperation with the Green Jobs for America Campaign, a partnership of the Sierra Club, Blue Green Alliance, United Steelworkers, NRDC and with the Center for American Progress and Green for All.

You can download the full report at the website of Green Jobs for America. Here's a preview:

The vast majority of green jobs are in the same areas of employment that people already work in today in every region and state of the country. For example, constructing wind farms creates jobs for sheet metal workers, machinists and truck drivers, among many others. Increasing the energy efficiency of buildings through retrofitting relies on roofers, insulators, building inspectors and many others.
