New Graphic Clearly Shows Solar Jobs Booming, Fossil Fuel Jobs Shrinking

For more information on this graphic, see The Solar Foundation's press release ("National Solar Jobs Census 2011 Finds Solar Companies Hiring Faster Than Rest of Economy"). Also note that between August 2010 and August 2011, while jobs in the U.S. solar sector expanded at a rapid, 6.8% rate, "jobs in the overall economy grew by a mere 0.7 percent, while fossil fuel electric generation lost 2 percent of its workforce." No wonder why the fossil fuel industry sees solar as a threat!
