Cleantech Creates Higher Paying Jobs — Millions Of Them

October 28th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the greatest side benefits of climate action is that it creates a lot of jobs. Not only that — it creates a lot of well paying jobs.

US Solar Power — Hit, Kicked, But Still Running

September 14th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

I wrote about the newest US Solar Market Insight Report this morning to provide an update on US solar power capacity added in the first half of 2020, including in relation to other energy sources.

In many so-called red states that voted for Trump, the demand for solar power is rising and creating jobs faster than any other sector of the economy, according to research by Greentech Media


3 Ways Donald Trump’s Climate Approach Is A US Economic Disaster

January 21st, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

To be fair, we don't yet know what Donald Trump's precise climate approach will be, but it seems all but guaranteed that he will slow and obstruct climate action and will do a great deal to increase pollution and CO2 emissions from out-of-date oil, coal, and gas industries. This is idiotic not just because it puts all of human society at great risk, but also because it's one of the worst economic moves a politician can make
