Tree hugger or not, all humans have a responsibility to protect the planet. Fortunately,74 percent of Americansagree with that statement today. The rest still worry that “going green” would cost the economy some serious green and result in major employment cuts.
On the contrary, “more jobs are created for each unit of electricity generated from renewable sources than from fossil fuels,” according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. Moreover, the UCSpoints outthat fossil-fuel technologies tend to be capital-intensive, whereas the renewable-energy industry is more labor-intensive. In 2015, for instance, the Solar Foundationreportedthat the solar industry created jobs nearly 20 times faster than the national rate.
Apart from employing Americans, clean energy and other “green” practices, such as recycling programs and urban agriculture, benefit the environment and public health, all of which contribute to America’s bottom line. Recognizing those advantages, cities across the U.S. have aligned their sustainability efforts with their economic goals and in turn have received handsome returns on such investments.
