Green jobs, jobs, jobs, please

The US has lost 8 million jobs since 2007, and unemployment is expected to remain around 10% for the rest of this year.  President Obama has proposed a $ 100 billion stimulus for small businesses, which is only about one eighth of what was spent on the banks.  It is too little and, by the time the money is spent, it will be too late to help many Americans.  During the Great Depression, it took only 90 days to get 3 million people employed in public works projects.  Today, a similar direct investment in American workers would stimulate the economy, increase tax revenues, and renew the country's infrastructure.  The administration and Congress should act now to put people back to work.  "...There's a beacon in the sky, meant to catch your eye...", sung by Happy Rhodes.  Concentration on solar energy, no non-renewable energy resources and no nuclear, is what's needed; and a green jobs movement.  For e.g., a solar manhattan style project is a necessary first step.  We can't ignore reality, must prevent the point at which ecological destruction becomes irreversible, and humanity and large mammals are extinct, now, in the future; if not you, then who, now, then when, here, where, this, what?   Extinction is NOT an option.  Please, ACT NOW- CHANGE THE FUTURE, before there isn't one for humanity.
