Where the jobs are, green edition(By Nancy Rivera Brooks via Los Angeles Times)Green jobsare growing like, well, weeds, analysts tell us. If you want to

know what these jobs are and where they can be found in California, visit a

new mapping website from the Environmental Defense Fund.The site allows you to search for companies that do things such as retrofit

homes for energy efficiency, manufacture parts for renewable energy

systems, build electric cars or process advanced fuels.Web surfers can search for companies by city, county or -- strangely enough

-- congressional district. Not so strange, according to Margot Roosevelt of

our sister blog, Greenspace.Why congressional district? Well, that would be so constituents could tell

their representatives how much green business is at stake when they decide

how to vote on American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, the sweeping

legislation that seeks to control global warming emissions while creating

green jobs. The bill, sponsored by Reps. Henry A. Waxman (D-Beverly Hills)

and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), is expected to reach the floor of the House

of Representatives by July 4.Click on the congressional district of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Orange) for

instance, and one can count more than 40 green businesses, including

Catalina Solar & Wind in Avalon, Clean Energy Fuels Corp. in Seal Beach,

and Doran Electric Vehicles in Huntington Beach.This would be the same Congressman Rohrabacher who sent out a press release

this week calling climate legislation "The Biggest Power Grab in History"

and touting himself as "among Congress' most outspoken opponents of global

warming alarmism."The enviromental group says the site is a "work in progress," with new

companies joining the roughly 2,200 counted so far.Los Angeles County is tops with 398 green businesses. San Diego and Orange

counties are neck-and-neck for the No. 2 spot with 208 and 202,

respectively.For the latest green energy jobs please click here
