Bloomberg January 12, 2020 12:10:55I’m still not quite sure why it was the wind that drove this country’s economic recovery.
In the first quarter of this year, our country added a record-breaking 12.2 million jobs.
That’s nearly twice as many as were added during the same period a decade ago.
But that’s the opposite of what we need to do.
We need to be investing in new jobs.
The U.S. has the third-lowest unemployment rate in the industrialized world.
And if we can keep our energy policies strong, we can create hundreds of thousands of new jobs in the years ahead.
I’m convinced that a better, more energy-efficient energy future is possible.
And that’s why I’m supporting the U.K. on its plans to expand wind, solar and other forms of clean energy.
This is not a one-time event.
It’s something we can build on for decades.
