In Rolling Hills, green energy jobs involve risking life and death at 300 feet in the air sometimes, roping the blade of a wind turbine.

The work, however, comes with a gorgeous view across the Wyoming prairie, and an even more beautiful view into the future of American industry.

Experts say that wind turbine jobs are expected to be the fastest growing carriers in America between now and 2024, growing an astonishing 108 percent during that time.

The wind turbines stand on reclaimed land which covers a coal mine that was worked inside of for almost 50 years. However increasingly, Wyoming's energy no longer comes from mining what's down below ground, but from mining the wind above the clouds.

In Wyoming, which is the top coal-producing state in America, the wind now provides an estimated 10 times more energy than it did just a single decade ago.

However, under President Trump's guidance, that may just be the beginning for this new and exciting sector in America that went largely ignored under Obama, contrary to his 2008 campaign promises.

A major Chinese company is recruiting workers for wind turbines it hopes to build in Wyoming, and will even pay for training, in a deal that brings more foreign investments into American industry that desperately needs a kickstart.

One of the perks of the President of the United States strong relationship with China is that through diplomacy the two giants can restructure one another and balance the trade in a variety of ways, such as these investments into America the beautiful.

Republican Speaker of the Wyoming House of Representatives, Steve Harshman, said he has no problem with the Chinese creating Wyoming jobs.

"There is so much integration in economies around the world," he said. "I think it's all about free markets and I think we all support that."

One Rolling Hills man who worked in coal the majority of his life, Travis Harkins, traded his coal job career to begin the work in wind, a decision he made with his wife Sam and three loving children in the front of his mind.

"When I was in coal, I had a concern about how I was going to provide for my family," he said. "Wind generation definitely opened up a whole new avenue for me. And a lot more opportunity."

People across Wyoming have long taken pride in being America's biggest coal producer, but now they're learning to embrace the winds of change, and with it, a lot of new jobs.

Fuck off dickhead, the only wind Trump knows about comes either from his mouth or arse, and both of them stink. Obama(yeah, I know how much you love him) was working towards this along with many others. N ow it's all finally coming to fruition, the improved stock market, investments, jobs, energy, etc, little Donnie dickhead is stealing all the credit while slagging Obama off, what a total shitheel, hogs others glory, lies about them, can't face his own choices were shit and blames everyone else. He needs a plaque on his desk with a bart simpson quote on it "I Didn't Do It! Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything!" It sums him up perfectly.
