South Korea will create 1.5 million green energy jobs

Going green costs jobs? Tell that to South Korea. The country plans to create 1.5 million jobs -- and, not for nothing, 328 trillion won ($304 billion) in new exports -- by increasing investment in green energy.

But when it comes to selling the U.S. on greener energy, money talks, and that 328 trillion won and 1.5 million jobs ought to be talking pretty loud.
