Green Jobs, Green Buildings

A friend of mine sent me the link to this video to highlight some of the actions are government is taking to not only boost our economy through adding jobs, but doing it in a green way. Van Jones from the White House Council of Environmental Quality visits a local work site that gives us a glimpse of the clean energy economy that’s on the way. Green roofing is just one of the countless green job opportunities that will emerge from President Obama’s comprehensive energy policy. Much like Roosevelt’s projects in the 30s and 40s, these jobs are intended to give people in local communities work and provide a much needed service to homes and buildings in cities around the country. Check out the video and let us know what you think!
