It’s like a broken record. Over and over again, Big Polluters tell us renewable energy kills jobs. They say clean energy is bad for the economy.
But it’s time to set the record straight: just one renewable sector alone, solar energy, now employs three times more Americans than coal mining. So when it comes to what’s good and what’s bad for the economy, it’s clear where clean energy – and in particular, solar lies. And right now, solar is booming.
Every week, Climate Reality runs a series on Twitter called #ClimateFact Saturday, where we make climate change and climate solutions simple, one fact at a time. Recently, we broke down The Solar Foundation’s 2015 National Solar Jobs Census. If you missed it, here’s a rundown of what happened on #ClimateFact Saturday while you hit snooze.
