Well, the defn of green job changes daily. I'm willing to bet all GM jobs are green as long as the Govt owns it. I believe working as a hydro-electric power plant is a green job, but in OR Hydro power is not green energy. (?)
When he said that, we were at the California State Fair in Sacramento. The parking lot of Cal Expo is covered with solar panels that both shade the parking lot and provide power to the expo facilities.
My father, being a liberal, thinks that projects like that will provide all of America's energy needs in future years.
Well Dad might be correct, but until we get to 2350 AD we'll need reasonably priced energy in the meantime. Honestly. Wind and solar are about 3-5 times the cost of our current mix. If we triple the price of energy for mfg, trans, overhead,& personal utilities, what will that do to the econ? At the same time China & India are building cheap coal & nuke. Tell dad to wake up and smell the ozone.
