While I was cruising the various green tech sites this morning catching up on my reading, I came across this item from TreeHugger (courtesy of another site, Mother Nature Network) listing the 10 best cities where graduates might find green-tech or clean-tech jobs.

I'm sure it won't shock you to hear that San Francisco is #1, but it might intrigue you to hear that auto-friendly region Detroit and oil-industry haven Houston also make the list. The hybrid and electric car funding are fueling new jobs in Michigan and don't count out Texas when it comes to renewable energy.

The post includes stats, the focus of the region's green investment, and information about the policies that are making job creation possible. The other cities that made the list include:

  • Denver
  • New York
  • Portland
  • Los Angeles
  • Sacramento
  • Boston
  • Phoenix
