While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    The New Jobs Building New Energy

    Green New Deal Would Reshape Blue-Collar Jobs, Training

    Dean Scott and Tyrone Richardson, March 1, 2019 (Bloomberg Law)

    A Democratic blueprint for helping to reverse the impacts of global warming could reshape construction work and other blue-collar jobs, as well as the training required for them…The Green New Deal (H. Res. 109, S. Res. 59) draws up a 10-year plan with trillions in estimated government funding to help shift the U.S. to 100 percent renewable and zero-emission energy sources…The nonbinding resolution wouldn’t set policy but proponents hope it can fuel multiple bills on clean energy, green jobs, and climate change that would move in the 116th Congress…Democratic backers of the green deal still face major obstacles with Republicans in control of the Senate and the White House, but also with the resolution splitting support from some influential [coal and mining unions and electrical workers and steelworkers] unions…

    “…[T]he deal’s call for a massive shift toward wind and solar energy as well as rail lines for expanding mass transit and high-speed rail suggests a potential windfall for construction workers and the green energy sector…[and] highlights the importance and challenges of retraining the nation’s workforce to help with massive cuts in carbon emissions from major sectors of the U.S. economy…State-level experimentation with specific policies, such as fair transition plans or job guarantees, could provide the data to inform federal measures…[because some think] state workforces are prepared for green jobs…[It] would include technical training needed to meet what would be a huge demand for renewable energy jobs if the U.S. made the leap to 100 percent wind, solar, and other renewable energy from what today is just a 17 percent clean energy mix in the U.S. electricity sector…" click here for more
