Green Jobs

Sen. Bernie Sanders chairs a hearing at 2: 30 ET today to explore  whether the United States is competing with other nations for green jobs.  One of the witnesses is John Danner, CEO of Northern Power Systems, a next-generation wind turbine company based in Barre. Vt. Northern Power is the oldest wind turbine company in the US. Founded in 1974, it designs, manufactures, and sells reliable, efficient wind turbines.  "While we are proud of what we have accomplished to date, we are confident that as we grow Northern Power into a leader within the global wind turbine industry, we will create tens of thousands of jobs."  Other witnesses include Leo Gerard, president of the United Steelworkers;  Paul Cicio, president of Industrial Energy Consumers of America; David Montgomery, vice president of Charles River Associates; and  Kate Gordon, vice president of Energy Policy at the Center for American Progress.
