Van Jones Tapped by Obama as Green Jobs Advisor

Guess who emailed me today? Van Jones. You know, Van Jones, eco and social justice activist, green jobs promoter extraordinaire, author, co-founder of Green For All. Actually, he emailed me and about a hundred thousand other people to inform us of his selection to advise the Obama administration on all things related to green jobs. To quote him "my job will be to help shape the administration's energy and climate policy, so that climate solutions produce jobs and justice for all Americans." Oh yeah! His official title will be Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. How cool is that? A brother in charge of directing and strategizing on employment policy for one of the nations fastest growing fields. Change is here. Van, can you hook me up?
