Barack Obama spoke at Cardinal Fastener, a Bedord, Ohio factory that produces parts for wind turbines.
Obama vowed to put a half million people to work, building wind turbines and solar panels, creating more jobs in the renewable energy industry.
“Renewable energy isn’t something pie-in-the-sky,” Obama said. “It’s not part of a far-off future. It’s happening all across America right now. With all the bad news going on out there, with all the news of jobs lost and businesses shuttered, jobs were created right here.”
