The Truth about Job Creation

Based on research from the University of Massachusetts, just spending $1M on mass transit and freight rail development gets you 22 jobs versus just 5 jobs in natural gas (i.e. fracking) and 7 jobs in coal. In fact, solar, wind, and building retrofits ALL outscored the fossil fuel industry. Source 350.org & Earth Justice.
