Green Economy Has Changed National Politics: Close-up on West Virginia & Virginia

clean economy jobs map

Politics and political allegiances change with time. With the current clean energy revolution (still nascent, but growing fast), this powerful (no pun intended) sector is influencing politics quite a bit… or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that what politicians and industry do with this revolution is influencing politics.

Scott Cooney of sister site The Inspired Economisthad a great post the other day on how the clean economy seems to be changing politics in West Virginia and Virginia (in opposite ways). It’s a really interesting read, so I’d recommend checking it out: The Green Economy has changed national politics: Virginia and West Virginia case studies.
