US states set to benefit from clean-energy job boom in net-zero transition

Republican-led states in the US, known for their resistance to climate action, are poised to reap significant job benefits from the country’s transition to a net-zero economy, according to a new study. The research suggests that clean-energy sectors will create hundreds of thousands of jobs in regions traditionally reliant on fossil fuels like Texas, Wyoming, and Oklahoma.

With the demand for renewable energy infrastructure set to skyrocket, total employment in the energy sector could double or even triple by 2050. This finding challenges Republican leaders’ long-standing opposition to climate policies and underscores the potential for job growth and economic prosperity in the clean-energy transition.
