    I find this book(One Million Climate Jobs)very informative. If one looks for a strong argument and idea with regards to roll out of alternative energy sources, and in this regard precisely renewable energy then this book does take a very strong stance in outlining he possibilities.And when I saw the estimated figures of how many jobs exactly could be generated, I saw my self saying, “there can be more jobs than a million”. Turns out I was correct. However I wish to stress the need for political will in all this, accompanied by practicality from he ground up. Those wishing to pursue this change must have a backbone of support, in order for the people to be able to see the link with their struggles.
