Originally published on Huffington Post. Jumpstart The Economy: We Need Green Jobs Now By Van Jones
George W. Bush’s house of credit cards is falling down – on the heads of the American people. We need dramatic action – but not just to bail out financial titans who destroyed the economy. We need to throw a green life-line to the people who want to rebuild it. There is only one comprehensive solution to the present mess: put America back to work retrofitting and repowering America with millions of green-collar jobs.
Saturday, tens of thousands of people in all 50 states will be rallying, demanding real solutions for our communities. We are calling the events: "Green Jobs Now! A day to the build the new economy." FIND AN EVENT NEAR YOU
