Governors See Green Job Creation in Climate Legislation

Many states are seeing the importance of embracing the new green economy but others are less convinced citing regional differences.

Associated Press reports:
"Three Democratic governors told a Senate panel [July 21,2009] that efforts to curb global warming and spur the development of cleaner sources of energy have created jobs and new businesses in their states, a trend that could expand nationwide if Congress passes federal legislation. All three states New Jersey, Colorado, and Washington have adopted measures to achieve reductions in the gases blamed for global warming and standards requiring a certain percentage of electricity from renewable sources.

But this view was not shared by all state leaders testifying Tuesday before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, including North Dakota's Republican governor and a Democratic state legislator from Arkansas, highlighting regional differences in addressing climate change."
