This past Thursday President Obama discussed the job-creating potential of investing in clean energy. He took a tour of a Holland, Michigan factory that makes advanced batteries for alternative-fuel vehicles such as hybrids or all-electrics.
Obama talked about the benefits of spending money on producing such clean-energy technologies as advanced batteries, which would include more jobs and reduced consumption of foreign oil. He calls them “jobs of the future” and says the U.S. should lead the way in developing energy sources that pollute less.
