New laws build wave of green jobs in Oregon

If you build good sustainability incentives into state law, they will come to Oregon with green jobs. Such was the promise when renewable energy legislation was being debated. It worked. Now the Oregonian reports a wave of green energy jobs is coming to Oregon.

The promise of sustainability is real, and it's time to bury the tired old conservation vs. jobs story. Conservation and sustainability are good public policy and they're good for everyone.

The jobs are good ones, like SolarWorld expanding their photovoltaic manufacturing operation in Hillsboro outside Portland.
