Environmental law to produce new jobs

Looming U.S. rules that power utilities face on air pollution could create nearly 1.5 million jobs over the next five years, according to a report.

WASHINGTON – Looming U.S. rules that power utilities face on air pollution could create nearly 1.5 million jobs over the next five years, according to a report.

Engineering, construction and pipefitting are some of the professions that could see a rise in jobs as Environmental Protection Agency rules push utilities to invest in new capacity and pollution controls, said the report “New Jobs — Cleaner Air.” The report was commissioned by Ceres, a coalition of environmentalists and institutional investors.

Most of the nearly 1.5 million jobs would be temporary.
