Obama wants to double renewables production

Over on Greentech media, there’s a piece about Obama wanting to double renewable energy production and make public buildings more energy efficient,  create three million new jobs. Through his Recovery and Reinvestment Plan with strategic investments as a down payment on long term economic future.

Hopefully, he won’t have any technological favourites when it comes to biofuels…

He talks well. Watch him here.

One Response to Obama wants to double renewables production

    Simon,
    Abt the job creation part, there is an ongoing debate at the Environmental Economics blog on whether these economic stimuli will indeed create new jobs. Mark Thoma has a counterpoint here .

    On my part, I think that these policies will lead to job creation in the short-run.
