Forum on green jobs

Decades of deindustrialization have left Ohio struggling to retain and create jobs. At the same time, use of polluting forms of energy sends money out of the Ohio economy, consumes ever-larger portions of families' budgets, and threatens the planet. Green jobs offer potential solutions to both high unemployment and high energy use and costs. But what policies are needed to ensure that green jobs are good jobs, that they grow here in Ohio, and that historically excluded communities are included? Join moderator Amy Hanauer in a conversation with Dave Rinebolt, Director of Ohio Partners for Affordable Energy, Carl Scheutzow, an IBEW certified electrician and NABCEP-certified solar installer and trainer, and Courtney DeOreo who is helping Cuyahoga Community College develop pathways out of poverty and into green jobs.
