another sign the obama administration means good for the earth


Good green things are happening at the White House. Van Jones, founder of Green for All — the grassroots green jobs organization — and author of The Green Collar Economy, was recently named Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

At his new post, Mr. Jones will help shape the administration’s energy and climate policy, so that climate solutions produce jobs and justice for all Americans.

Good stuff. If you haven’t read The Green Collar Economy, pick up a copy at the library, borrow one from a friend, or get one (used) from Amazon.com.

Hey Van, how about putting up those solar panels on the White House?
