    Forecast for Boom in Green Jobs

     

     
     

    Tens of millions of new jobs could be created around the world by the development of alternative energy technologies over the next few decades, according to a report by the UN's Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Labour Organization (ILO).

    Unep director Achim Steiner warned against ditching green energy policies because of the current global economic crisis as, 'in the long term the new jobs will make economies stronger and help make goods with less oil and gas'.
