Green Jobs Outlook
Green Jobs are growing rapidly. In October 2008, Global Insight published green job projections in a report developed for The United States Conference of Mayors and the Mayors Climate Protection Center. This report, "Current and Potential Green Jobs in the U.S. Economy," predicts the highest growth of green jobs will be in renewable power generation, residential and commercial retrofitting, and renewable transportation fuels. This report includes projections not only 'direct' green jobs (such as hands-on manufacturing and retrofitting jobs), but 'indirect' green jobs, which they identify as engineering, legal, research, and consulting positions. Their projections for potential green jobs through 2038 for the US as a whole, totaling 4,214,700, are represented in the following table:
2006 data for the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Miami Beach areas show employment in green jobs at 6,717 and are projected for 53,145 by 2038.
