How can renewable energy be used to build a strong secure economy?

    Yes, especially if we make sure to include populations that have been excluded from the economic booms of the past. As has been found in many areas of the so called “Rust Belt” of the U.S. automobile factories and there former workers can transition into manufacturing wind turbines and other green technologies with only a small investment in retrofitting and training. Thousand of people out of work in the construction industry can also be trained to be solar panel installers, energy auditors, and home weatherizers. And of course having domestic renewable sources of energy will mean we aren’t dependent on foreign oil anymore. For more information on this topic I highly suggest you read The Green Collar Economy by Van Jones.
