Obama's entire economic plan has been "The New Apollo Program" as designed by the Apollo Alliance.

The President's New Jobs plan is still "The New Apollo Program" but now under the veil of the Apollo/Blue Green Alliance's "Jobs 21" plan.

Don't think so?

Well the video not only shows Obama parroting the Apollo Alliance President but also shows the Blue Green Alliance admitting that Obama's New Jobs Bill is really apart of their plan.

Energy Efficient Windows Causing Vinyl Siding and Plastic Car Parts To Melt



According to You Tube:

"In neighborhoods across America, there's a strange phenomenon happening that's melting paint, siding, pool covers, and car parts. It's a problem that even caught the attention of the Department of Energy.

The vinyl siding on Lynne Loudon's home survived 20 years of hail, rain, wind and sun. So, she couldn't figure out why it suddenly started melting.

"I thought maybe it was lightning or because I bought a new microwave," Loudon said.
Over time, the melt zone got longer and wider leaving Loudon to think her house was shifting. Something else was shifting up above in the sky.

"Came out one day and noticed like a spot of light, like yellow light and it was coming from the window," Loudon said.

Loudon wasn't seeing things. A neighbor saw it too.

"It was just a bright circle with an X in it," Kathy Stec said.

Loudon and her neighbor agreed that the bullseye of sunlight appeared to be reflecting off the new, double-hung windows added next door. They're energy efficient with a low e-glass coating. This means they reflect sunlight in the summer and keep the heat inside during the winter.

Vinyl Siding Institute says it's not just siding that's melting
The National Association of Home Builders says the curvature of the glass in the double hung windows can create a magnifying glass effect that focuses a light beam at other surfaces that can reach 200 degrees."

CNS News: Census Bureau 'Artificially Inflates' Number of Same-Sex Households by Nearly 40 Percent



According to CNS News:

"The Census Bureau "artificially inflated" the numbers of same-sex households in the United States by 39.5 percent, it was revealed Tuesday during a conference call briefing highlighting results from the 2010 Census.

The original data from the 2010 Census ("Summary file") set the number of same-sex households in the U.S. in 2010 at 901,997, according to a Sept. 27 Census Bureau press release,

But the Census Bureau said it has revised the number downward "because Census Bureau staff discovered an inconsistency in the responses in the 2010 Census summary file statistics that artificially inflated the number of same-sex couples."

The revised estimates from the 2010 Census found that there were 131,729 "same-sex married couple households" and 514,735 "same-sex unmarried partner households" in the United States -- for a total of 646,464."

Obama to Ban Asthma Inhalers



According to Infowars:

"Remember how Obama recently waived new ozone regulations at the EPA because they were too costly? Well, it seems that the Obama administration is would rather make people with Asthma cough up money than let them make a surely inconsequential contribution to depleting the ozone layer: Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government's latest attempt to protect the Earth's atmosphere. The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday patients who use the epinephrine inhalers to treat mild asthma will need to switch by Dec. 31 to other types that do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, an aerosol substance once found in a variety of spray products. The action is part of an agreement signed by the U.S. and other nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer, a region in the atmosphere that helps block harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun. But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more. Epinephrine inhalers are available via online retailers for around $20, whereas the alternatives, which contain the drug albuterol, range from $30 to $60."

Democrat Governor Wants To Suspend Elections



Yes you read the title right, according to The DC, Democratic Governor Bev Purdue wants to suspend elections so that the Government can deal with the economic crisis:


"As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years.

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”

Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. “You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things,” Perdue said."


Next thing you know the Democrats will be suggesting we imprison all those who oppose Obama's "Jobs" bill since they are contributing to the "Crisis".

Wow... Am I living in Orwell's 1984?

Researchers Discover Smart Meters Can Track Your TV Habits



Earlier this year I exposed how the Smart Grid will be able to Track your TV and Internet use as well as your carbon creation.

As crazy as that truth sounds, according to metering.com, a German Research company just released findings that confirm what we already know, Smart Meters will be able to track what your watching on TV and maybe even on your DVD player:

"A group of researchers at the Münster University of Applied Sciences have claimed that it is possible to use the electricity usage data from a smart electricity meter to determine which programs a consumer is watching on a standard TV set.

The test results, which have been presented in draft form and are yet to be formally published (presumably with peer review), also suggest that it may be possible to identify films played from a DVD or other source, the researchers claim.

The tests were carried out by Prof. Dr.-Ing U. Greveler, Dr. B. Justus, D. Löhr of Münster University’s IT Security Laboratory as part of the state-funded DaPriM (data privacy management) project.

The researchers conducted the investigation at a private residence in RWE’s service area in North Rhine-Westphalia, with a 3-phase Zähler Q3D smart meter from EasyMeter reading at 2 second intervals and the smart meter data sent to the company’s consumer web portal. They were able to readily identify the consumption profiles of the standard household appliances, including refrigerator, kettle, hot water heater, microwave, washing machine, oven and lighting. In addition, they were able to identify the TV and to match the light and dark scenes in a film to the smart meter data.

They then generalize this to suggest that through analysis of programs being broadcast at any time – and provided there is minimum interference from other devices – it may be possible to determine the channel to which the TV was set.

In the light of these results the researchers call for a tightening of data protection regulations, including a restriction on the length of time data is stored."


As you can see the idea that the Smart Grid can and will track everything you do in your life via your energy use is not a "tin foil hat" concept but a reality.

So as you sit in your home watching TV thinking you are safe from the prying eyes of your neighbors just remember.... your not safe from the prying eyes of the utility company and possibly the Government...

Thanks to the Smart Grid.

Missouri Democrats and Republicans Teamed Up To Destroy Your Property Rights



The Founding Fathers understood the importance of Private Property and it's connection to Liberty.

James Otis wrote:

"One of the most essential branches of English liberty is the freedom of one's house. A man's house is his castle."

Thomas Jefferson believed:

"He who is permitted by law to have no property of his own, can with difficulty conceive that property is founded in anything but force."

James Madison espoused:

"Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government which impartially secures to every man whatever is his own."

And John Adams preached:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If 'Thou shalt not covet" and 'Thou shalt not steal' were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free."

If Mr. Adams were alive today he might very well cry "TYRANNY!" from every town square of every city from one end of Missouri to another ....and rightfully so.

Why?

Because the Tyrants that hide behind the two party system here in Missouri have set aside their supposed differences long enough to Destroy what was left of Your Property Rights.

How?

By Passing a Bill that changed the definition of "Blighted", allow me to explain.

Recently I discovered an odd definition of the word "Blighted" in the Missouri Aerotropolis bill, It defined "Blighted" as:

"any area which produces or generates or has the potential to produce or generate electrical energy from a renewable energy resource,"

The properties that were to be "Blighted" were then to be used to create 'Renewable Energy Generation Zones' that would supply electric power via:

"(a) Wind;
(b) Solar thermal sources or photovoltaic cells and panels;
(c) Dedicated crops grown for energy production;
(d) Cellulosic agricultural residues;
(e) Plant residues; SCS SB 8 60
(f) Methane from landfills, agricultural operations, or waste water treatment;
(g) Thermal deploy merization or pyrolysis for converting was te material to energy;
(h) Clean and untreated wood such as pallets;
(i) Hydroelectric power, which shall include electrical energy produced or generated by hydroelectric power generating equipment, as such term is defined in section 137.010;
(j) Fuel cells using hydrogen produced by one or more of the renewable resources provided in paragraphs (a) to (i) of this subdivision; or
(k) Any other sources of energy, not including nuclear energy, that are certified as renewable by rule by the department of natural resources;"


As the list above demonstrates, this form of eminent domain is absolute Tyranny because it allows Private Property to be taken for no other reason than the Sun Shines On it or the Wind Blows across it. That form of eminent domain is basically a blank check for the state of Missouri to seize any property that tickles their fancy.

But what is even more terrifying is that this form of eminent domain did not spawn from the Aerotropolis bill, but was just going to be used by it.

Thanks to Van at Blogodidct.blogspot.com, he discovered where this travesty of Liberty was spawned, a Republican/Democrat created bill this year (I added party affiliation):

"The Green Blight language comes from this bill, House Bill No. 737 (more informatively linked here) where the green blighting text is added (which is a story in itself),

"...The term "blighted area" shall also include any area which produces or generates or has the potential to produce or generate electrical energy from a renewable energy resource, and which, by reason of obsolescence, decadence, blight, dilapidation, deteriorating or inadequate site improvements, substandard conditions, the predominance or defective or inadequate street layout, unsanitary or unsafe conditions, improper subdivision or obsolete platting, or the existence of conditions which endanger the life or property by fire or other means, or any combination of such factors, is underutilized, unutilized, or diminishes the economic usefulness of the land, improvements, or lock and dam site within such area for the production, generation, conversion, and conveyance of electrical energy from a renewable energy resource;..."

It was sponsored by Representative Craig Redmon (Republican) and Representative Michael Corcoran (Democrat), and the summary states,

"Changes the laws regarding renewable energy in enhanced enterprise zones and the taxation of hydroelectric power generating equipment"

The green blighting language isn't long standing legislation at all, or even unrelated, it was added earlier this year in the same legislative session, and was intended to be passed along with the Aerotropolis Bill."

This absolute despotic piece of legislation was then signed by the Democratic Governor and even praised by supposed "Conservative" Republicans like Brian Munzlinger. In a press release Mr Munzlinger praised HB 737 as a way to create jobs:

“House Bill 737 is similar to my filed Senate Bill 357, which would enable more renewable energy development — especially in northern Missouri,” Sen. Munzlinger said. “This is a good policy that sets a standard for hydro, wind and solar power around the state. Missouri would also be able to expand the scope and purpose of Enhanced Enterprise Zones.”


With all due respect to Mr. Munzlinger but did he even read or understand all of this Bill?

This Bill wasn't about creating jobs, it was just a way to give the State Government the power to seize Private Property anywhere as long as the Sun Shines on it or the Wind Blows Across it.

That is Tyranny.

So I guess we should be proud to live in Missouri...

Because while the rest of the country is complaining of "partisan" politics causing divides among the populace, here in Missouri we have Democrats and Republicans coming together to help push forward the "Green" agenda.

But don't worry, they aren't letting silly things like....oh.... Your Right To Private Property...... stand in their way.

Favoritism?: Struggling Fed Funded Battery Manufacturer Gets Deal With Government Motors

A123 is battery manufacturing company who, according to the Department of Energy video below, was "bailed out" with the help of "Stimulus" funds to help them build factories here in the U.S.

But oddly in the video, Energy Secretary Chu claims that A123 was actually started with the help of Federal Funds even though the company has been around since 2001. Is he telling the truth, lying or just confused?:



Through 2010 and the first part of 2011, A123 was still struggling because even though it had some smaller production contracts what it really needed was a large, long term commitment from an Automobie manufacture in order to help force up their stock price.

Who came to A123's rescue in August of this year?

According to Cleanenergyintel.com, GM or Government Motors of course:

"A123 Systems (AONE) finally secured today its long-awaited production contract with auto maker General Motors (GM).

Not much by the way of detail has thus far been announced. However, this is clearly a breakthrough for AONE. The company has a number of smaller contracts for its battery packs - notably for Fisker Karma and its initial contracts with GM itself. However, shares in AONE have suffered as the industry has been waiting for the company to deliver a significant production contract with a major automaker - with a persistent rumour that such a deal was in the works with GM.

That wait had become something close to tortuous as GM continued to test AONE's battery chemistry at its lab in Warren, Michigan. Year to date AONE's shares were down 67% at last night's close.

GM has of course already said that it plans to produce 60,000 Volts next year. Micky Bly, the GM executive in charge of the company's electric vehicle program, also today stated that "GM is committed to offering a full line of electric vehicles - each of which calls for different battery specifications".

Exactly what part AONE will play in that program has not been announced. However, Reuters quotes a spokesman for the company as having stated that AONE expects to build thousands or up to tens of thousands of battery packs a year for GM."


Ironically A123 had been working with Chinese battery manufacturer BAK Battery since 2005 in designing their earlier products. According to a press release in 2006, BAK Battery even began manufacturing batteries based off of this collaboration utilizing BAK's cheap labor:

"China BAK Battery has also formed a contract manufacturing partnership with A123 Systems, an emerging supplier of Nano-Phosphate Li-ion batteries based on patented technology developed at MIT. Since early 2005, China BAK Battery and A123 have collaborated at their Shenzhen facilities to design, develop and implement an advanced mass production line to exclusively manufacture first products for A123. High volume production has commenced and these products have been rigorously tested to meet the most stringent Tier 1 OEM quality requirements. A123 high power batteries will be used in a variety of applications including power tools, medical devices and hybrid electric vehicles which are all respective growth areas for the Li-ion battery market.

"These new manufacturing agreements validate the success of our strategy to increase our presence in traditional Lithium Ion applications by expanding our OEM customer base and penetration while also partnering with leading edge technology developers," commented Xiangqian Li, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "By partnering with leading researchers and manufacturers, we are leveraging our high quality, low cost manufacturing infrastructure, expanded capacity and capabilities to position the Company for continued growth during 2006."


There goes creating "American" Jobs or selling American made "Green" products to China.

So is this another example of Favoritism (Like Solyndra) where the Federal Government helped prop up A123 and felt it necessary to bail it out again in the form of a contract with Government Motors?

Or just an example of the Free Market at work?

Ok, Ok, I know... this is nothing that even resembles something like a "Free Market".....

More like a possible example of the Government picking winners and losers...again.

Rebel Pundit: Congressman Mike Quigley to Islam Conference: “I apologize on behalf of America”



According to Rebel Pundit:

"Quigley gave remarks to the primarily muslim audience. He rambled on about the typical racism and discrimination that the liberal left is so convinced America is rampantly infected with. As you can see in the video below, he proceeded in his congressional capacity to apologize on behalf of the country for discrimination against muslims’ faith."

Nice Job Rebel Pundit!

Guest Post By Bill Hennessey: "It's All Your Fault"

It’s All Your Fault

by BILL HENNESSY on SEPTEMBER 18, 2011 ·

Straight up: We can’t tell you now where future After Parties will be. We can’t name the venue. And it’s all your fault!

Well, not all. some if it’s my fault, but in a very innocent way.

Planning The After Party

Eisenhower said that planning is essential, but plans are useless. He was right.

When we were planning The After Party, we figured about 50, maybe 75, people would attend at each one. We based this on a few factors, including some surveying of interest and attendance as last year’s Thursday Night Throwdowns.

We were wrong, if by “We” you mean “Bill.”

Yes, I was wrong. Others warned, but I didn’t listen.

I’m happy to say I screwed up, though.

What Happened?

Well, over 100 people showed up. And more will show up on October 20. And more after that.

So our plan of rotating through great St. Louis restaurants is all shot to hell. Most restaurants can’t accommodate groups our size.

Plus, we can’t afford to rent a hall big enough for all of us, unless some angel comes through with an After Party grant to help us continue our mission (hint).

So Michelle Moore and others are busily at work trying to find a solution. We’ll need space for more than 100 in October and November, and more than that in future months.

Bottom Line

You overwhelmed the system, you Cloward-Piven wannabes, with your desire to fix America. You are champions. You are heroes. Society owes you a big thank you. On behalf of that grateful nation, let me be the first to say Thank You for accepting the challenge of a generation. Again.

University Of Missouri Receives $1.5 Million From DOE To Help "Transition To Clean Energy Economy"



No matter how bad the jobs picture becomes here in the U.S., the Obama Administration appears to continue 'full steam ahead' with their Apollo Alliance created blueprint to transform the U.S. economy. The name of that Apollo Alliance blueprint is called "The New Apollo Program" and it would seem that the Obama Administration has recently taken a play from page 4 of that blueprint where it states:

"TAP THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE AMERICANPEOPLE.

America must scale up its workforce tomeet the demands of the clean energy economy. We call for expanded investment instate and local green-collar worker traininginitiatives, higher education scholarships, andunion apprenticeship programs that focus onpreparing workers for everything from low skill,entry-level jobs that help Americans climb theladder of opportunity all the way up to high-skill, high-wage jobs at the leading edge of technical innovation."


Don't take my word for it, read it for yourself:

Full Report Final

In line with "Tapping the Productivity of the American People" by "investing in instate and local greencollar training incentives" the Department of Energy has issued over $30 Million Dollars to Universities around the Nation, $1.5 Million to our own University of Missouri, in order to set up "industrial training programs". According to eponline.com, Energy Secretary Chu says that these new training facilities are the "boots-on-the-ground progress toward our transition to a clean energy economy":

"More than $30 million have been awarded to 24 universities in 23 states across the country to train undergraduate- and graduate-level engineering students in manufacturing efficiency to help them become the nation's next generation of industrial energy efficiency experts. Each school will receive $200,000 to $300,000 per year for up to 5 years to help university teams to gain practical training on core energy management concepts through DOE’s successful Industrial Assessment Center program.

The Industrial Assessment Center program enables promising engineering students around the country to conduct energy assessments in a broad range of manufacturing facilities, providing skills and experience that prepares the students to compete in today's economy while helping local companies and factories to reduce energy waste, save money, and become more economically competitive.

“This industrial efficiency training program opens the door to good jobs in a growing, global sector for thousands of energy-savvy students while promoting real, boots-on-the-ground progress toward our transition to a clean energy economy,” Secretary Chu said. “The Centers will provide a boost to the next-generation of American workers as well as to the businesses with which they work.”


Think this will help create large amounts well trained individuals for the "Clean Energy Economy"?

Well only if your idea of "large amounts" is about a dozen a year:

"Under the program, each Industrial Assessment Center will be expected to train at least 10 to 15 students per year, conduct approximately 20 energy assessments annually, and perform extensive follow-on reporting, tracking, implementation, and management-improvement activities."

Isn't it nice to see the State funded University of Missouri, and about 24 other Universities, are taking such an integral part in the Federal Government's "Green" Transformation of the U.S. economy?

If one didn't know better one would think that this was a tyrannical take over of the U.S. economy by the Obama Administration utilizing all of the major Federal Agencies to force their will upon the state and local populace.

Oh wait...Silly me.... that is exactly what it is...

Where is that in the Constitution Again?

Flashback: Clean Energy Is Foundation For Proposed Stimulus

The Apollo Alliance is responsible for President Obama's first and only plan to create jobs, it's called "The New Apollo Program".

After the Apollo Alliance was exposed for having undue influence over the President's economic plans they merged with the Blue Green Alliance and attempted to scrub their website, and all of it's content, from the internet.

One of these "Scrubbed" articles that I discovered recently was one where not only does President Obama admit his whole jobs plan centers around creating "Green" jobs, but where the Apollo Alliance openly admits that the Presidents first Stimulus was indeed "The New Apollo Program".

Here is the entire article that they didn't want you to read:

Clean Energy Is Foundation of Proposed Stimulus

Even in this era of costly crisis and even more expensive rescue, $112.9 billion is still a lot of money. That sum is what Congressional leaders and President-elect Barack Obama propose to spend over the next two years to build new transit lines, weatherize buildings, manufacture clean next-generation vehicles, develop wind and solar power, make state and federal vehicle fleets more energy efficient, and create new green-collar jobs.

The details of the proposed stimulus package, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Bill, were made public today.

More crucial than the scale of the spending on clean energy is what the President-elect says it represents to his overall economic development strategy. Clean energy projects are the foundation of the $550 billion that Congress and the new administration want to spend to stimulate the economy to put 3 million people back to work. The balance of the proposed $825 billion stimulus is $275 billion in tax cuts.

The magnitude of the proposed clean energy, good jobs investment clearly indicates that President-elect Obama plans to launch his presidency with one of the most transcendent ideas in the history of the republic. He wants to anchor the American economy with energy sources other than those produced from fossil fuels.

“A new energy economy is going to be part of what creates the millions of new jobs that we need,” Obama said during a news conference last month. “That’s why my economic recovery plan is going to be focused on how can we make a series of down payments on things we should have done 10, 20, 30 years ago.”

    Signature Stories

Stimulus Consistent with The New Apollo Program
Obama and his energy and environmental team are convinced that a new era of prosperity can be ushered in by weaning America from the way it has powered its economy for nearly two centuries. During the presidential campaign, he vowed to invest $150 billion in clean energy projects over 10 years and create 5 million new green-collar jobs.

Obama made it clear that this was a top priority. The deepening economic crisis has only added to the urgency of passing a stimulus program that relies heavily on developing the clean energy and energy efficiency sectors.

Almost all of the clean energy, good jobs programs made public today, along with the dimension of the spending called for by Congress and the new president, track closely with the ideas and proposals advanced last year by the Apollo Alliance in The New Apollo Program and theApollo Economic Recovery Act.

“The recovery package released by Congressional leaders today is big, bold, and with immediate implementation will serve as a down payment on long-neglected investment in a clean energy, good jobs, made in America economy,” said Apollo Alliance Chairman Phil Angelides. “This plan embraces the sweeping set of actions that the Apollo Alliance’s national coalition of business, labor, environmental, and community organizations recommended in The New Apollo Program. The House leadership’s plan makes significant investments in increasing renewable energy production, modernizing our transmission grid, jump-starting critical transit projects, expanding energy efficiency, and putting people back to work in high-quality green-collar jobs.”

The New Apollo Program called for a ten-year, $500 billion comprehensive clean energy investment strategy to produce 5 million new clean energy jobs. The Apollo Economic Recovery Act proposed a quick start $50 billion one year investment strategy for clean energy development to serve as the basis of an economic stimulus package. This week, a 10-person Apollo Alliance delegation led by Angelides was in Washington to advance clean energy investments in meetings with Carol Browner, the assistant to the president for energy and climate, and with leaders of the House and Senate.

“Having just returned from Washington and meeting with the very leaders who will be driving the clean energy agenda from the White House and the Capitol,” added Angelides, “I am confident that the will exists to put America on the path to economic recovery, climate stability, and energy security.”

New Energy For America
The new administration and Congress proposed spending $112.9 billion over two years on clean energy, good jobs investment (see sidebar for details).

A statement issued by Congress and the new administration said: “This plan targets investments to key areas that will create and preserve good jobs at the same time as it is strengthening the ability of this economy to become more efficient and produce more opportunities for employment.”

There are strong indications that Americans are fully prepared to undertake a transition of the magnitude that Obama envisions. For more than a decade, according to the Center For Transportation Excellence, U.S. voters have approved 70 percent of public referendums that have called for imposing property or sales taxes for new mass transit systems. Before the credit crisis, sales of full-size SUVs had already begun to slip. Major cities have developed new economic development strategies based on reducing pollution, preserving natural resources, and becoming much more energy efficient.

Apollo Is Key Researcher, Advocate
Studies conducted by the Apollo Alliance
, government, other non-profit groups, and universities all conclude that the transition to a clean energy economy will produce millions of jobs. A major component of Obama’s stimulus package calls for spending $67 billion to make schools and other public buildings far more energy efficient, $10 billion to construct and modernize transit systems, and $11 billion to build a new electric grid system. This infrastructure spending, the new administration estimates, will likely generate 2 million jobs.

Programs to improve energy efficiency of homes and businesses would create 100,000 on-site jobs and hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs, economists estimate. Obama’s plan will call for sharply increasing weatherization programs for homeowners, from 140,000 homes a year to 1 million annually for low-income Americans – a move that would expand the number of private sector workers involved in home weatherization programs from roughly 8,000 today. He also intends to make 75 percent of federal government buildings more energy-efficient.

In addition the Obama administration plans to spend $2 billion to develop new battery technology to power the next generation of vehicles, and $8 billion to promote wind, solar and other renewable energy.

Continuing this level of investment over a decade will yield 5 million new green-collar jobs, an estimate supported by Apollo Alliance. These jobs would include everything from skilled trades and crafts, to managers, to maintenance employees. The president’s plan also calls for aiding manufacturers of clean energy equipment by establishing an advanced manufacturing fund, modeled on a program in Michigan that identifies and invests in innovative clean energy proposals.

Green-Collar Jobs
Most of these green-collar jobs will require more education than a high school diploma but less than a four-year college degree, and will pay family-supporting wages. That’s huge in a nation in which less than 30 percent of adults earned a college degree. And many of these jobs could be created in Michigan and other industrial states hardest hit by recent losses of manufacturing jobs.

The transition to a renewable energy economy is already proving to be a powerful economic engine. Before the current recession, clean energy was the fastest-growing industrial sector in the United States. Sales of new materials and equipment for the renewable energy sector – steel, gears, wind turbines, solar panels, insulation, software, high tech batteries, gauges, and hundreds of other products – reached $25 billion in the U.S this year, up from less than $10 billion in 2004.

In 2008, according to the American Wind Energy Association, the United States added 7,500 megawatts of generating capacity from wind – equivalent to 8 big new coal-fired power plants. Since mid-2007, 41 new wind turbine and component plants opened or expanded, generating 9,000 new jobs. Texas alone this year spent $3 billion on wind generating equipment. Wind is the leading edge of a clean energy industrial sector that, according to various studies, produced 500,000 new green-collar jobs in the U.S. in the past three years.
