A report released September 9 by NRDC and partner groups outlines how the U.S. can resuscitate the economy, address the energy crisis and help reduce global warming by investing in clean energy and green infrastructure. "Green Recovery-A Program to Create Good Jobs and Start Building a Low-Carbon Economy," describes how a two-year, $100 billion green investment program, funded by proceeds from a carbon cap-and-auction system, would spur four times as many jobs as spending the same amount within the oil industry, and 300,000 more jobs than directing stimulus towards household consumption. The planned jobs incorporate the existing skills of millions of Americans in every region of the country and invest in six priorities: retrofitting buildings for improved energy efficiency, mass transit and freight rail, "smart" electrical transmission systems, wind power, solar power and next-generation biofuels. The report includes 34 individual state fact sheets to highlight opportunities at the state level. Click here to access the full report, fact sheets and a full list of authors and sponsors.
