Jobs are a major concern in Washington County. So this is big news:
"President Biden on Wednesday announced an initiative to train more than 20,000 young people in skills crucial to combating climate change, such as installing solar panels, restoring coastal wetlands, and retrofitting homes to be more energy-efficient.
"White House National Climate Adviser Ali Zaidi said the initiative could help train the next generation of electricians. The country faces a dire shortage of electricians, who are needed to install a host of climate-friendly technologies, including heat pumps, efficient air conditioners, and electric car chargers."
