Pew Report says renewable energy policy would generate $342 billion for US

Renewable energy standard legislation would earn billions of dollars for the U.S. economy, says a report on the future of global clean energy policy from the Pew Environment Group. The study claims the U.S. would outperform all other countries, claiming $342 billion of the projected $2.3 trillion they expect to be generated by clean energy by 2020. The study suggests that such gains are possible if the U.S. adopts an aggressive stance towards renewable energy soon.
