Van Jones on Green Rooftops, Green Jobs

Van Jones, author and activist, and recently appointed Special Adviser to Green Jobs on the White House Council for Environmental Quality, visits DC Green Works to talk with Sara Loveland about the environmental benefits of green rooftops, and the opportunity for home-builders and construction workers to get highly-skilled, high-paying, green jobs.

In this video, Van Jones asks, “How do you create jobs, re-develop urban communities, and help the environment, at the same time?”

The video was posted to the White House webpage in celebration of Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009.

The Obama administration, with the vision of Van Jones, is aiming to create more than 5 million green jobs.
