Stimulus Bill Is Looking Mighty Green

While there is much debate on Obama’s stimulus bill that was passed Friday, the idea that there are any (or at least green jobs) is hopeful.  The economic stimulus touts to not only create green jobs, but will also tackle our global warming and reliance on fossil fuels.   President Obama needs our support, as our future depends on it.  

 

MSNBC’s article about Obama’s stimulus package being signed today in Denver, Colorado, clarifies this step forward with the promise of more jobs in the near future:

President Barack Obama will sign the $787 billion stimulus package today.  “The setting, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, is meant to underscore the investments the new law will make in “green” energy-related jobs.”

The Miami Herald’s   article from yesterday states, “Robert Pollin, a professor of economics and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts, said the green investment portion of the stimulus more broadly should yield about 1.7 million jobs, about 30 percent of them in construction.”

So let’s help President Obama’s “major milestone on our road to recovery. “  Visit Earth Promise and see how your changes can make an enormous impact.
