On Wednesday of this week, fellow Island Press author Bracken Hendricks and I talked about "green collar jobs" on Philadelphia's popular NPR show "Radio Times." We tried to define what "green collar" means, answered some questions about whether the job creation potential of clean energy is being overhyped, and discussed some of the creative policies that federal, state, and local officials might pursue if they want to increase the probability that green jobs will be good jobs.
It was fun for me, I think it was interesting for Bracken, and it might be of interest to you. You can listen on your computer or download the conversation by clicking this link.
I'd be interested to hear your reactions or to answer any questions about the growing green collar jobs political movement.
