To invest in training people that works in fossil fuels to work in renewables is common sense as they have so many transferable skills. "Labor union members at New York’s Ravenswood Generating Station are slated to become the first fossil fuel power plant workers in the United States to convert to operating offshore wind equipment in a landmark development toward a greener future" https://www.optimistdaily.com/2023/07/new-york-fossil-fuel-plant-pivots-to-offshore-wind-energy-and-takes-employees-with-them/
