Protecting Environment Is Good For The Economy

According to a new report, protecting the environment creates jobs.

"Nearly 5 percent of all jobs in Michigan are linked to environmental protection in some way, according to a report that contends what's good for nature does not have to be bad for the economy...Environmentally friendly products, programs and services create employment not only for scientists and engineers, but for office and factory workers and even truck drivers, the report says."
