From the article:
"It has been released in a report by Environmental Entrepreneurs that companies and communities across the country announced that more than 300 clean energy and clean transportation projects in 2012 are expected to create 110,000 jobs. Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) is a nationwide network of business leaders who advocate for policies that benefit both the economy and the environment. The E2 report comes just two weeks after President Obama announced goals to double our renewable energy and our energy efficiency which will help our economy as well as our environment. However many groups backed by the fossil fuel industry in states across the country, including state Renewable Portfolio Standards, are currently trying to derail clean energy policies. It is necessary that lawmakers continue to support policies to create good, clean energy jobs if we are to continue to see progress. Clean energy projects created jobs in all corners of the country and across Republican and Democratic communities in 2012, with California, North Carolina, and Florida leading the nation. The Southeast as a region led the country in manufacturing-related clean jobs, with more than 13,700 announced last year. Solar, advanced vehicles and wind energy were the leading clean energy manufacturing industries in the Southeast. In the fourth quarter of last year, nearly 16,000 clean energy and transportation jobs were announced, up from 10,800 in the third quarter. However many other sectors saw declines in the fourth quarter largely due to regulatory uncertainty in Congress during the 2012 election. Executive director of Environmental Entrepreneurs Judith Albert concludes, “Smart policies and regulatory certainty- both at federal and state levels- drive economic growth. If 2012 taught us anything, it’s that America wants to keep creating good, clean energy jobs, we need good, clean energy policies.”

Sorry Ruth for being such a skeptic.."Environmental Entrepreneurs" may have reported these jobs, but the nationa figures for unemployment declined at the end of 2012.
