China and other leading nations have gained more than $11 billion in job-creating clean-energy investments -- with the U.S. losing an estimated $208 million every day -- since the U.S. Senate abandoned comprehensive clean energy legislation in late July, according to a new analysis from Small Business Majority, Main Street Alliance, American Businesses for Clean Energy and We Can Lead.

The analysis shows that, if left unremedied, the Senate's failure to act will cost the United States 1.9 million jobs -- including 600,000 in the 10 states with joblessness in excess of 10 percent. The report estimates that Ohio will lose out on 61,000 jobs.
