Republicans Beat Democrats in Green Arena
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- There is a belief in political circles that Democrats love the renewable energy business while Republicans hate it. Certainly there is rhetoric to that effect.
But let's look at the record.
Clean-tech employment nearly doubled in Alaska during the last decade, and the job count in oil-rich North Dakota was up by 58%. Alaska had the highest percentage of its workers involved in clean-tech employment by 2010, but Arkansas, Tennessee and South Carolina also ranked high. Wyoming has a fast-growing green job count.The state with the third-highest number of clean tech jobs? Texas. Georgia, where I live, is also in the top 10. Georgia Power, which is building a huge new nuclear power plant along the Savannah River, is nevertheless committed to add 210 MW of additional solar power to its grid
