Congress Seeks the Upside of Global Warming

June 4, 2007


Massachusetts Congressman Ed Markey is bringing members of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming to Cannon Mountain in Franconia today for a firsthand look at how climate change is affecting New England. But committee spokesman Eben Burnham-Snyder says the visit's not just about seeing the damage, it's also about creating a new "green-collar" industry based on low-carbon energy sources.

“We could create a half a million green collar jobs within the next five to 10 years by really changing over our infrastructure to a lower carbon economy.”

Snyder adds that industry would benefit the economy as well as the environment.

“New England can be a big part of that, with a lot of the things that are going to re-energize our economy. That is going to bring in new, good paying jobs, and is going to affect our environment in a positive way.”

The new jobs would be in areas like wind energy, ethanol, and other renewable energy sources. The committee will hold a hearing this morning in the lodge at the summit of Cannon Mountain.
