Episode Summary

Congress is working on two versions of spill bills in the wake of the Gulf oil spill. But those bills may end up costing the renewable energy industry. Neither has a Renewable Electricity Standard and without that wind, solar and geothermal experts say those industries can't flourish. Tyler Suiters delves into the bills, and speaks with a woman whose family invested in solar, and sees a bright future for the energy source. Federal, state and local governments all tout green jobs. But more and more manufacturing plants for green jobs are closing up and heading overseas. Can green jobs be sustained? Dan Goldstein takes a look at two plants - one evolving into a green manufacturing plant and producing green jobs; the other a BP solar plant, closing its doors. What will it take, and what will it cost to keep green jobs here in the United States? Clean Skies Sunday talks with Dr. Mark Starik, Director of the Institute for Sustainability at the George Washington University. He discusses why one plant may have failed, and what the GM plant must do to stay viable and profitable. Finally, San Diego Gas and Electric never thought it would have to tackle an environmental group when it first began building renewable energy transmission lines. But that's what happened. Why? Lee Patrick Sullivan heads to San Diego for the answer to why the group is against the Sunrise Transmission project.moreless
