America creating clean energy jobs

US president Barack Obama annouced his new energy plan on Earth Day in Iowa, and made clear his administration’s goals to strengthen the economy by developing the clean energy sector.  Their latest initiative is to lease federal waters to generate electricity from wind and ocean currents.

Other green jobs that were recently created include green roofing, which helps lighten heating and cooling loads on buildings, and in turn cuts costs of heating/cooling required.
