President Barack Obama launched a program that he hopes will create thousands of green jobs based on energy efficiency, renewable energy, and cleans energy projects. Many reports predict that green jobs will be an area of greater growth compared to other areas of the economy. The Pew Charitable Trust reported that the number of green jobs grew in the United States by 9.1 percent.
The hope is to create 5 million green jobs within a decade. Some of these Green Jobs include: manufacturing of hybrid cars, building consultants, environmental study professors, wind turbine engineers, and lawyers for biofuel companies.
