Kansas survey: Green job growth ahead
A survey just released by the Kansas Department of Labor finds strong potential for growth in green jobs in the state, especially in renewable energy.
The voluntary survey of employers in the state found that they expect to add 10,000 workers by 2012 to the 20,000 green jobs already existing, and project growth of 121% in renewable energy development.
Given the very sluggish response of the national unemployment rate to the overall recovery now underway, that can only be good news. America urgently needs strong renewable energy and energy efficiency industries--yesterday.
