3. We could resurrect industry and manufacturing in the U.S. with a Works Green Administration
We could create millions of new jobs retrofitting homes with wind and solar and creating new energy technologies. In the same vein, the Apollo Alliance is "a coalition of labor, business, environmental, and community leaders working to catalyze a clean energy revolution that will put millions of Americans to work in a new generation of high-quality, green-collar jobs."



Of course, the main person who pushed for this kind of goal during the last election is short and kind of funny looking, so I guess there's no point. Better to have a good-looking president than a rescued economy and a restored industrial infrastructure.
