Hmm, Maybe There Are “Green” Jobs

Just not the type you’re thinking of

(Market Watch) America can boast only 500 green jobs in solar electric power generation, but 886,000 green jobs in government — many for passage of environmental laws, enforcement of environmental regulations, and administration of environmental programs, according to the new count of green jobs for 2011 released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics this week.

Supposedly there are 3.4 million green jobs in the US. Quite a few are silly, and even more are simply people working for environmental companies and producing nothing but talking points and agitation.

Thanks Teach for pointing out that once a solar electric system is up and running it requires very little human support. That is of course one reason that the cost of solar watts drops so quickly. Solar prices will always go down, fossil fuel prices ?? Nuke plants have become uninsurable.
GC i sright the US Navy would have way more people working in “green jobs” tHANks for mentioning them GC.

Once again john shows a lack of humor and understanding of sarcasm.

FACE PALM!!!!! LOL

REmember, working in a bicycle shop is a green job. Driving a bus or a garbage truck is a green job. Working for sewage plant or in a school’s science dept is a green job.

Our gov’t is about 80% bloat. Time for it to go on a diet. NOW.

Dead horse?

I thought that was an image of john’s ideas and beliefs. ;)

If only they were dead ideas. We can find them portrayed in indoctrinational, er, educational institutions as well as elected Democrats and media outlets, as they care little for reality and science.
