The Green Economy

“We can’t drill and burn our way out of our economic and ecological ills, but we can invent and invest our way out”, says Van Jones, the author of The Green Collar Economy and founder of Green for All.


This guy doesn’t need my help nor do I get any consideration for recommending this book. But this is a thoughtful straight forward view of how we can help the economy, create jobs, and retool America to get out of this economic slump while repairing the environment. That’s an incredible task and often encompassing goals that seem contradictory. But it’s do-able! There is hardly anything these days that is more important or has more far reaching effects on each of us who live on the “third rock from the sun”. We are all citizens of a global community. What happens to one of us good or bad, affects the rest of us. Check this book out. It is informative, thoughtful and I think you’ll find it eye opening just how simple the solution is to getting our efforts headed in an effective and more appropriate manner.


You’ll find it a very educational and entertaining read. No matter how you voted in the recent election, it was very clear that the large majority of us were ripe for change. We have all seen how our daily lives have been effected by the environment, poor decisions and lack of responsiveness over the last few years. Nobody can deny we need some changes. Van Jones shows us how our goals to provide an better place to live, more jobs, security for our families and save the environment are all goals that can be accomplished together without sacrificing one over another.
