In tonight’s NBC News/POLITICO presidential debate, Mitt Romney wrongly stated that green jobs were nowhere to be found. LCV released the following fact check in response:

QUOTE: “[Obama] keeps talking about green jobs, where are they?”

FACT: There are already 2.7 million jobs across the clean energy economy with the clean energy sector growing at a rate of 8.3 percent. Clean energy is already proving to be larger job creation engine than the heavily subsidized fossil-fuels sector, putting Americans back to work in a lackluster economy.
