California discovers that green technologies create jobs. No duh.

The number of green jobs in California grew 10 percent between 2005 and 2007, a new report says. About one-fifth of those jobs were in manufacturing. (Of course, the landscape isn't quite so rosy in 2009.) The report also notes that the companies in California that were the most energy efficient were also immensely more profitable as a result of their efforts.

So let's see:

--Green technology production is rapidly creating jobs--including a sizeble number of manufacturing positions.

--The use of green technology makes companies more profitable.
