    Is green energy worth the destruction of the American economy coal and automobile gas are targeted to force change and in return people cannot pay there heating bill's or put gas in the cars to go to work or else search for work and the higher the price of gas goes then the higher the price of food goes from transporters crying for more money to fuel there trucks and auto factories will fail again as people hold off on buying gas powered cars killing our auto industry again .

    I think Green jobs is the way to go.However, as an African American male who has been convicted of a crime more than 20 years ago, it still is a hardship getting employed.I believe evrytime you answer yes to the question ona job application asking have you ever been convicted of a crime,your appplication gets pushed all the way to the back or gets thrown in the garbage, even if you have not committed another crime since your release 10 or 20 years ago.

    What can be done in terms of legislature for men who have been released and have not committed acrime or have had police contact sincetheir release 10 or 20 years ago, that could help them become gainfully e mployed.
