The topic of green jobs under the Obama administration continues to receive a priority focus.  Today, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont was named as the chairman of the Green Jobs and New Economy Subcommittee.  The subcommittee is part of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

“Today we face the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression.  There is no better moment to move forward aggressively on energy efficiency and creating new sustainable energy and creating jobs in the process," Sanders said. “The potential for job growth in this area is bigger than almost anything else I can think of.” Source: Senator Bernie Sanders
