Last week, I posted a portion of Van Jones’ keynote address at Power Shift ’09. The video included the first 9.5 minutes of the speech and left viewers excited to hear the rest. The Energy Action Coalition posted the complete video yesterday, and I had to chuckle as I saw the phrase “Green Jobs Czar” used in the video’s description.
I do not think the topic of green jobs is worth a chuckle, but I found this completed video right after reading MNN blogger Karl Burkart’s article about the use of the word “czar” to describe Jones. After you watch this inspirational 20-minute speech, head on over to Karl’s blog and read Van Jones: 'I am not going to be any kind of czar'.
