My name is Bob Oedy, and I’m the author of The Green Career Ladder, a step-by-step guide to profitable careers in sustainable energy. In the past, most people who were concerned about the environment had to choose between making a difference and making a living, but those days are over. Volatile energy prices and technological change now make it possible to save the planet and get rich at the same time. Working in Green energy is like working in Hollywood: there are a lot of people who want to get into the industry for reasons that have nothing to do with money. They’re willing to take a pay cut because they want to do good work, and there are plenty of companies willing to exploit that idealism to get cheap labor. I don’t want you to fall into that trap. I want to see you succeed and reach the pinnacle of your dreams. I’ll show you how in The Green Career Ladder.

The community supports the elimination of ugly power lines in Los Angeles. Power poles and wires are seen as blight to neighborhoods. They are dangerous for both the public and the line workers who work on them and their use destroys forests. For years politicians, various community groups and labor have been meeting to come up with solutions and are now asking the city to "Invest in a Green LA".
City Council Member Herb Wesson held a press conference on the West Lawn at Los Angeles City Hall. Backed by supporters he announced the Green Jobs Bond Initiative which will provide substantial investment for three Green programs.
1) The Green Retrofit and Workforce Program.
2) LA River Master Plan
3) LA CleanTech Manufacturing Corridor Initiative
The goal is to put 25 percent of LA’s power lines underground by 2030, retrofit all affordable housing, and require LEED silver standards or better for residential rehabilitation projects funded by the Housing Dept. These projects will lead to the development of Green jobs and provide a Green career ladder for young people.
