"Green Collar Jobs" mean everything from building new environmentally safe construction, equipment, engines and automobiles including retrofitting old buildings as upgrades are needed to researching and developing new fuels and energy sources for clean air, water, soil remediation and including new ways to design green and recycle green. It's almost really a matter of seeing a pollution, waste or environmental problem and developing the expertise to solve it.
