New research poses an interesting question: More people in America are employed by the wind energy sector than by the iPod, so why are so many people bumping to iPod tunes while simultaneously shutting the window to wind?
According to the Personal Computing Industry Center recently, wind energy actually provides for a bigger share of total employment in America than the popular iPod did back in 2006. The reason? The iPod indeed did create many jobs, but many of these jobs were overseas in nations such as China.
The iPod’s total number of foreign jobs created lingered at more than 27,000 jobs in 2006 – the same number of domestic jobs created by the wind energy sector in the United States (compared with only 14,000 U.S. jobs created by the iPod). Meanwhile, wind energy has yielded a little more than 9,000 jobs overseas, about 2/3 less than the iPod did.
The total number of wind energy jobs currently rests at about 75,000, predicts the American Wind Energy Association. Researchers believe the number of jobs created in the United States as a result of the wind energy sector easily could jump to as high as 35,000, with research remaining at the forefront of this green area.
With statistics that point to the growth and promise of the green wind energy industry in the U.S. job market, the failure of Congress to renew a $1 billion wind energy tax credit by the end of this year still is a hot issue in the 2012 U.S. presidential race between supporter President Barack Obama and opponent candidate Mitt Romney.
