Where the Energy Jobs Are

For years, the dirty energy industry has warned of massive job losses if the nation switches to clean energy. It's dead wrong. Max Wei, Shanda Patada, and Daniel Kammen of the University of California at Berkeley reviewed fifteen recent studies on the job-creation potential of various energy sources and found that renewables generate more jobs per unit of energy delivered than do fossil fuels.  For a calculator showing how many jobs could be created under various assumptions, see rael.berkeley.edu/greenjobs. (See the links on this site.) Figures shown here represent jobs per megawatt and include jobs in construction, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance.

Anybody surprised- beside me?
