"Van Jones Slams Misleading Quotes in NYT Green-Jobs Story"

"In an email to Climate Progress, green jobs champion Van Jones explains how The New York Times misrepresented his quotes and his views."

"The story in question is 'Number of Green Jobs Fails to Live Up to Promises.' I debunked it yesterday for completely ignoring the 'explosive growth' documented by a recent Brookings study in the clean energy jobs sector -- even though the article cited the study!

I thought that the quotes attributed to Van Jones didn't sound like the passionate, optimistic green jobs guru I have had the good fortune to get to know at the Center for American Progress."
