New Map: Green Jobs Ready to Take Off with Cap on Carbon Pollution

Screen shot of one of the green job mapsOn Friday, we released a set of interactive maps showing 1,200 companies that are poised to benefit from a national cap on carbon pollution.

Jackie Roberts, our director of sustainable technologies, put it this way: “These maps tell the story of companies across the manufacturing heartland that will get new customers and create jobs with a cap on carbon.”

The maps were presented at the kick-off meeting of Vice President Joe Biden’s Middle Class Task Force. (Here’s a liveblog of the event from the White House web site.)

Reactions are coming in. Politico gives an overview of the political context, Care2 features a video interview of Jackie explaining where the map idea came from and how to use the maps. The folks over at Environmental Leader and Climate Biz weighed in, too.

If you have any comments on the maps, please post them here.
