Connecticut is Extra-Green
This article from TMCnet.com caught my attention today – Connecticut is headlining the movement towards what are called “green-collar jobs.” Apparently these jobs can be blue or white collar, but the point is that they’re in fields which are concerned with the environment and environmental protection.
Connecticut has just signed a bill to further higher education in these fields. They even have a Green Collar Job Council. With sites like greencollarjobs.org, the green collar concept is becoming more and more widely accessible, as well as thanks to the tens of millions of dollars available to further green technology from President Obama’s Consolidated Appropriations Act.
Connecticut is a great place for data centers, too. Their focus on green energy and jobs and lack of too many serious natural disasters makes them a great choice for data center construction, colocation, etc.
Having lived on the west coast for so long, I’d like to go and check out what it’s like to have real seasons…
