Consumer spending is a must to have the economy recover from the recession. People are unlikely to spend money on things that they already own. But, if new inventions come along, such as green technologies that save people on electric bills, then that may encourage people to spend money on those products and, therefore, create green jobs.
Increasing funding for "green" industries is part of the President's plan to decrease unemployment, and resolve growing concerns about the economy, the debt crisis, and our effect on the environment. Innovators and businesses alike see opportunities for growth with the "green" initiative, and this will create "green" jobs. The "green" industry movement, along with funding from the government, will open many job opportunities for everyone, from business people to engineers, technicians and salespeople.
There is already a market for green jobs, green energy, and green products. Many people care about the environment and believe something should be done now. As scientific evidence is gathered and shown to support the idea of a declining Earth, more people will join the green initiative, and green jobs will become abundant.
Currently, the government is aggressively promoting any types of green projects, and that includes the creation of green jobs. Because of incentives that will be out there, companies will be drawn into creating green jobs and, in turn, because of this, there will be a greater amount of green jobs available.
Earth's population is growing, as is its demand for energy. Fossil fuels are limited and, in the future, will become increasingly scare and therefore expensive. Furthermore, concerns over the environment will make continued reliance on these fuels undesirable. Therefore, it is only natural that many governments and private industries will turn to renewable energy sources and environmentally friendly technology. This will, in turn, create a growth in "green" jobs.
Now that Americans are aware that the environment is their responsibility, more and more companies are going green each day. Additionally, a number of companies have been created from the desire of Americans to go green. The smartest are now working to create companies that use technology to out-green the other guys.
Absolutely, "green" jobs are the wave of the future. New developments are created every day in solar and wind energy production, and there is a workforce of skilled workers needed to get things moving. "Green" jobs will soon explode with the way "green" technology is making new inroads in energy production.
There will be more "green jobs" in the near future, because more and more people are starting to get interested in taking care of the word around them. People are less trusting of things nowadays. Also, with all the sickness out there, people are afraid. Such fear, will cause action.
We should be having more "green" jobs right now in fact. We should be trying to save the world, not end it.
The pollution level in our planet has reached a critical point where its our duty to convert our every effort in a environment friendly process. Using green power and green products is a major step in that process. To make this happen the concept of green jobs is essential. Therefore, these jobs should enjoy a considerable growth in the future.
Our nation's economy is still bad and we are still recovering from financial and unemployment issues. For green jobs to be a growth industry with a sustainable future, there must first be companies and businesses which open, develop, create such jobs, and hire people to work in this industry. At this moment in our economy, we are struggling to place people in non-green jobs. Not many companies are expanding or hiring. The green jobs employment possibilities are still a long way into the future.
While it may be beneficial in the long run for everyone to go green I do not think that it is practical at this time. Items and technologies that are "green" are more expensive for the average person to implement in daily life. There are many small things that the average person could do (no plastic water bottles for example) but I believe that "green" technology should start in the manufacturing businesses before it is expected that the average person could afford a hybrid car or solar panels on their house.
There may be some increase in green jobs, especially with our present President pushing for more sustainable ways of living. But, every once in a while, the whole green thing rises to the surface - only to be pushed back under the surface when it's coolness factor cools off. And, though some things are accomplished, I don't think that considerable job growth in the "green" field is one of them. I don't see considerable growth of green jobs happening. I can just hope that some of the "green" ways that people pick up during this phase of Earth appreciation stick around and become permanent in our lives.
