Are they really “green” jobs?

Oh, the hype over green. It’s a word we all like to play ball with these days – batting it around.

I’m happy there’s an effort to focus on a longer-term outlook on the job situation, but I think there’s a lot of “greenwashing” occurring as well. (Greenwashing is when things are labeled “green” for the sake of the trend, and not necessarily truly grounded in how good it actually is for the environments found socially, naturally, and economically.)

Here’s an interesting post questioning green jobs on an economist’s blog who I happen to know.

More discussion to ensue as it arises…
