Green Jobs Are Queuing up to be the New Economic Drivers of the 21st Century  


Job losses in the U.S. have been commonplace over the past few years, largely due to the nation's worst recession since the 1930s.  However, some experts suggest there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that its color is green. The US Green Chamber of Commerce (USGCC) outlines how record investments in renewable energy, combined with some of the best entrepreneurial minds in the nation, are breathing life back into our flailing economy.
