Ecologizing Jobs Growth 3

I believe "ecologizing jobs growth" is the environmental community's next big step towards solving today's environmental problems -- at scale. What's the most effective way to empower environmental causes in 2012? Link them to jobs growth.

Our broad community of environmentalists -- fighting to preserve nature and save the planet, needs easy to share, fact-based metrics that show the financial and ecological wins and losses related to today's industrial practices.

"Ecologizing jobs growth" needs to be about more than promoting green jobs. America's economic restoration is critical to the quality of our environmental future. Our environmental community needs to work together to articulate its vision for a sustainable economic restoration.

After achieving that, we need to build support from mainstream Americans in a manner that puts pressure on both politicians and whole-industries to grow within our framework.
