CALGARY, Oct. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - The concept of "green jobs" has become immensely popular among policy planners looking to address the problem of global warming. The promise that western economies can reduce carbon emissions while creating thousands, if not millions, of "green jobs" — which will more than compensate for the job losses that will occur in sectors reliant on fossil fuels — has been especially embraced by some politicians, relieved to find a pro-climate policy that also doubles as a pro-economic policy.
But are green jobs all that green? Are green jobs new jobs? Or are they existing jobs that have been "green-washed"? What impact do these jobs actually have on the economy?
Join Professor Michal Moore and Jennifer Winter at a media conference where they will challenge common-knowledge with facts, and present surprising conclusions.
