Despite concerns surrounding the phasing out of fossil fuels, perhaps phasing them out will be beneficial to the job economy. Fossil fuel jobs pay well and do provide people with jobs, but once the resource in question runs dry, workers are often laid off and forced to find work elsewhere. From June 2019 to June 2020, oil and gas production have recently experienced a downward trend, with U.S. crude oil production falling to 38% and natural gas production to 31%. Following this trend, states like North Dakota saw a rise in their unemployment rate, attesting to the downward spiral the fossil fuel industry seems to be taking. 
In contrast, finding work in the renewable resource sector does not have the same issue, as it uses resources that do not run out. This aspect of the renewable resource industry makes it more appealing to workers since they don't necessarily have to worry about the stability of their position.
