Abstract

By Andrew Ross T eh Gnineer G f o A c irem A r e i siv Te d Can the U.S. Create High- Skill Green Jobs? There have been very few silver linings to the Great Recession, but one of them has been the prospect of launching a new industrial revolution pow- ered by renewable energy. In the absence of any other candidates, green indus- trial policies have been prioritized as a recipe for economic recovery and the key to job creation, whether for building and operating the new energy infrastruc- ture, or weatherizing the existing built envt i- he 1970s, and the so-called “peace dividend” ronment. The urgency of the climate crisia s fter the ending of the Cold War in the early raised the stakes much higher. Shunning the 1990s. Both were nipped in the bud by policies call for sustainability would not simply be lo a ng committed to regarding the safe passage of missed economic opportunity. It would be oil through the Straits of Hormuz as a matter of tantamount to a death sentence for large po nr a- tional security. In countries with their own tions of the world’s population.
