Supernova 1:  The 3.4 million clean energy jobs “…aren’t green jobs, they’re not blue state jobs. They’re not red state jobs. They are red, white, and blue jobs that are in every state”.

Supernova 2:  The entire US coal industry only employs 60,000 Americans. The pandemic has resulted in 100,000+ clean energy workers getting laid off

Supernova 3: Investing $100 Billion in US clean energy programs would create over 870,000 good paying jobs, doing energy efficiency in schools and workplaces; manufacturing & installing solar, wind & clean heating systems; and creating electric cars & charging stations
