United States: Solar Power Will Create 200,000 Jobs in Two Years
It is hard to deny the job creation ability of renewable energy:


With unemployment on everyones mind, the Obama administration has been touting green projects as a source of new jobs. Now the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has confirmed that some government programs can do just that -- create jobs.

Recently the SEIA released an independent study predicting that extending the governments Treasury Grant Program (TGP) and Solar Manufacturing Investment Tax Credit by two years will create an additional 200,000 new American jobs.

3. While we're talking about how important it is to invest in it...
Western Europe, Oceania & even China are doing it.

5. This is an example of how I think we ought to do it.
I'm only critical of the administration when they deserve it. I'm also quite thrilled to praise them when they earn it. This one earns kudos from me.
