Capturing the Wind


If the jobs of the future are in wind and solar, where will those jobs be located? Unless we act quickly, this picture shows the answer:


Chinese Windmills

By the end of the year, China will be the world’s leading manufacturer of wind turbines.


The U.S. government’s investment in wind is tiny compared to China ‘s, and that means American workers are missing out on millions of new jobs.

All that could change: In two weeks, there’s a vote on President Obama’s plan for anew energy economy. But American lawmakers are wavering in the face of a flurry of Big Oil ads, claiming America can’t afford clean energy.

E-mail your congressman and senator.  Tell them not to let the Chinese beat us!
