Green Jobs in Philadelphia
Pats on the back to colleagues of mine on both the funding and doing side of the hot issue called "green jobs." Vice President Biden and a good chunk of President Obama's cabinet will be in town today for a hearing on the subject, and the Knight Foundation and the Energy Coordinating Agency are building a green jobs training center in Kensington to redeploy workers into the burgeoning fields of weatherization and renewable energy installations. Job creation, workforce development, economic stimulus, energy conservation, environmental sustainability, and more comfortable homes - that's a lot of birds for just one stone. Kudos all around.
