Video: EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson's Address at the Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference



EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson's opening keynote address at the Good Jobs Green Jobs Conference on February 8, 2011. Jackson explains how facing environmental issues provides economic benefits and good green jobs. Jackson goes on to illustrate how Environmental health and economic growth go hand in hand. Environmental protection has created 1.7 million jobs as of 2008 and between 2000 and 2008 the environmental protection industry has netted 300 billion in revenues. These facts are important as special interests try to gut America's safeguards like the clean air act, while trying to find loopholes so that big polluters can skirt common sense protections.
