"Green Job Growth Outpaced All Other Industries 2010-2011"

"For people looking to put their finances in the black, a new report suggests they may be wise to look green. That's according to a report released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that breaks down employment in green goods and services through 2011. As first pointed out by the LA Times, the report shows 'green jobs' growing from 2010 through 2011 at a rate 4 times faster than all other industries combined."

"The BLS defines green jobs as those that produce goods or services 'that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources,' or jobs 'in which workers' duties involve making their establishment's production processes more environmentally friendly or use fewer natural resources.'"
