Van Jones Will be Green Advisor in Obama Administration

According to this AP article on, Van Jones will be a green jobs adviser in the Obama administration. Wahoo!

Jones is the author of The Green Collar Economy and Founder of the Oakland-based, Green for All.

I had the opportunity to interview Van in the spring of 2007 as he was leaving the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which he co-founded, to start Green for All.

You can read a copy of the interview on Have Fun * Do Good, but I really recommend you listen to it on the Big Vision Podcast. He's an inspiring speaker:
