Creating a Green American Dream

I have something really cool to show you. But before I do, a little background.

Last Friday, I had the immense honor of speaking at the first meeting of Vice President Joe Biden's new White House Task Force for Middle Class Working Families. Vice President Biden launched his Task Force with a discussion of how green jobs could help build a strong middle class. And he asked me to chime in from Green For All.

What a measure of how far our green jobs movement has come. We've brought to light real solutions to the economic and environmental problems facing the country. And we've done it so well and so beautifully that the White House itself wants to hear what we have to say -- and wants to make sure everyone else is listening, too.

Naturally, I had to do something special. I asked my colleagues at Green For All to whip up a short video I could play, showing how we can revive the American dream with green jobs.

They only had a couple of days, but they knocked it out of the park. Take a few minutes to watch the video below.
