$47 Million for Renewable Energy Projects to Replace Oil

One aspect of renewable energy is its potential for creating new jobs in traditional fields, but the opportunities are also significant for new job creation in high value R&D careers. Elsewhere in CleanTechnica we’ve pointed out that a coal is a primitive form of energy that belongs to a bygone age. In terms of career opportunities, the same case can be made for our continued dependence on oil. Yes, there are technological advances to be made in emission control, but the impacts of fossil fuel harvesting can’t be papered over by new technology. By continuing to focus tax dollars on subsidizing fossil fuels, we are missing the opportunity to fund the development of a far wider range of energy sources that call for new skills in high value fields.
