Greens offer new eco-energy jobsGreen Party candidate Jake Griffiths condemns the Welsh Assembly

Government's record on renewable energyThe Wales Green Party has launched its European elections manifesto by

setting out a 'green recovery package' which it says would create 50,000

jobsin Wales.The party says its vision is the best way to tackle the recession and the

only way to tackle the climate crisis.The party has four candidates standing in on 4 June. In 2004, the Greens

came sixth in Wales with 4% of the vote.Lead candidate Jake Griffiths launched the party's manifesto at a solar

power manufacturer in Cardiff.The party is calling for a big national effort to rebuild and transform

Britain's economy, industry, financial services and public transport

infrastructure, putting the UK economy on "something like a war footing".They say their 'Green recovery package' would create 50,000 jobs in Wales

and a million jobs across the UKIt would lead to a rapid growth of low-carbon industries like wind-turbine

and solar panel manufacture and would mean building more trains, trams and

buses for a revolution in public transport, said the party.Green candidates

problems with the economy, the environmental problems and we feel that the

Green Party has got a set of policies that really tackle those issues."We feel that there is an opportunity for 5,000 to 10,000 jobs to be

created in Wales through use of renewable energies.""Overall, through our policies we estimate that we could be looking at

50,000 jobs being created in Wales over the next two or three years if we

were to put our policies in place."The Wales Green Party said its vision provides an antidote to widespread

apathy, cynicism and disenchantment with politics.Jake Griffiths added, "There are huge challenges ahead and we feel that the

other parties, Labour and Plaid Cymru, just are not rising up to these

challenges."For green energy jobs in Wales, the UK and across the world please click
