Create New Green-Collar Jobs

President-elect Obama has made the following promise:

"My energy plan will put $150 billion over 10 years into establishing a green energy sector that will create up to 5 million new jobs over the next two decades, including jobs right here in Ohio that pay well and can't be outsourced. We'll also provide funding to help manufacturers convert to green technology and help workers learn the skills they need for these jobs." — 2/24/08, Lorain, Ohio
