Fake News: NYT - Today’s Energy Jobs Are in Solar, Not Coal

New York Times reports:

Today’s Energy Jobs Are in Solar, Not Coal
Last year, the solar industry employed many more Americans than coal, while wind power topped 100,000 jobs. (LINK)
However, this only shows that Solar Power is the least efficient energy source. This is easily shown by comparing Megawatt Hours per worker. 

Coal 7745
Natural Gas 3812
Wind 836
Solar 98






In other words, producing the same amount of electricity requires one coal worker, two natural gas workers – 12 wind industry employees or 79 solar workers.
