Renewable Energy Creates More Jobs

Posted on October 15, 2012


Want to create jobs for people?  Forget fossil fuels.  They’re not only bad for the future and bad for the environment, they’re bad for job creation, too.

The alternative?  Renewables.  Solar energy, wind energy, light rail transit, environmental retrofitting, all produce more jobs per buck invested.

Observe the following chart.

There is absolutely no reason why our governments should be wasting tax dollars giving special benefits for fossil fuel companies.  It’s quite clear that economically as well as environmentally, investing in green jobs just makes more sense.  It’s cheaper, better for the people, and we don’t have this “destroying the climate as we know it” thing hanging over us, either–which is what fossil fuel companies are selling us.
