How can green-color job development help the economy and the environment?

Could "green-collar" jobs clean the "dirty-energy economy" and lift people out of poverty? In the past, job creation and protecting the environment have been, some say, mutually exclusive. But in 2007, the Green Jobs Act and the founding of Green for All, an organization that focuses on green job training, marked the beginning of a movement to redefine economic growth. Is it possible to reconcile these historic opposites? Senator Steinberg and Green for All founder Jones talk about green economic development and its potential.
