Green Jobs

I will post more details on this topic soon. But I am in the renewable energy business (biogas from waste to electricity and heat). This business is capital-intensive and often displaces more traditional energy that is labor-intensive. That may mean less jobs are created not more.

There are good reasons to pursue alternative energy sources, but creating jobs is not one of them. Some research is reviewed in a University of Illinois study.
