The Green Collar Economy by Van Jones

The Green Economy by Van Jones lays out one solution for two problems -- energy and jobs.

Find green business solutions
The Green Collar Economy by green jobs advocate and nonprofit leader, Van Jones is not a dire warning but rather a substantive and viable plan for solving the biggest issues facing the country--the failing economy and our devastated environment. From a distance, it appears that these two problems are separate, but when we look closer, the connection becomes unmistakable.

Van Jones delves into a solution that both re-engineers our economy and improves the environment. The current economy is built on and powered by oil, natural gas, and coal, all fast-diminishing nonrenewable resources. As supplies disappear, the price of energy climbs and nearly everything becomes more expensive. With costs and unemployment soaring, the economy stalls. When we burn these fuels, the greenhouse gases they create overheat the atmosphere.

Van Jones illustrates how we can invent and invest our way out of our pollution-based grey economy and into a healthier green economy. Built by a broad coalition of ordinary people, this path has the practical benefit of both cutting energy prices and generating enough work to pull the U.S. economy out of its present death spiral.
