While the economy is beginning to recover, unemployment rates are still high – a challenge to U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke. One of his jobs is to foster growth, specifically by growing a green workforce and transitioning the nation to a low carbon economy. With these goals in mind, he’s participating today with Canadian Minister of Industry Tony Clement and Mexican Secretary of Economy Gerardo Ruiz at the University of San Diego in a conference on clean energy to promote North American cooperation, innovation, and competitiveness in the world markets. The Secretary joins Patt with his best ideas on clean energy and how the U.S. can create those much-needed jobs.
