What Does Net Zero Mean For The U.K. Or Something

This looks like some very serious gaslighting going on

Climate change: What net zero transition will mean for UK’s 1.3m workers

The UK’s net zero push will force 1.3 million workers in more polluting sectors to adapt as the decarbonisation drive will involve major changes across the economy, a think tank has said.

A report by the Resolution Foundation and LSE shows decarbonisation will disproportionately affect the UK’s 1.3 million ‘brown job’ workers who are most exposed to the impacts of the transition, as they are most prevalent in emissions-intense sectors. (snip)

The net zero race will involve major change across the economy but won’t destroy jobs in the way that deindustrialisation did in the 1970s and 1980s, the think tank suggested.

“This has led some to warn that decarbonisation could be as damaging as deindustrialisation in terms of job destruction. Some transitions into new jobs will be required, but the reality is most workers will feel the net zero transition through changes to the jobs they already do, rather than redundancies and completely new types of work,” Kathleen Henehan, senior research and policy analyst at the Resolution Foundation, said.

In other words, this is going to cause major workplace problems

“Securing a ‘green job’ is likely to lead to higher wages, but entry into those jobs is dominated by those with higher skills. Rather than focusing on misplaced forecasts of huge jobs losses, policy makers should prioritise supporting workers to adapt to new technologies and tasks, either in their current jobs, or by moving to ‘green’ jobs through an expansion of skills and training. That will hold the key to ensuring that decarbonisation can lead to better jobs and pay for as many people as possible,” she added.

Yeah, don’t worry about the potential for huge job losses, people will just need to learn to do something else!

The report said the real challenge is to ensure that low and mid-skilled workers can benefit from the net zero transition with most areas of job growth being higher skilled.

Low skilled jobs are going to be crushed. You know these folks are going to have to put out story after story saying everything will be fine, because they know it won’t.

    Remember when “learn to code” was considered something mean to say?

    But the article tells us what we’ve been saying all along: the people advocating all of these efforts to fight global warming climate change are not the people who will be most harmed by their proposals. They’re like the neocons advocating greater American efforts to defeat Russia in Ukraine: it’s not their kids who will be sent off to war!

    Letter to the NJ Sentinel c1911:

    Dear Editor,

    Dag nabbit!! I just had to close my buggy business here on account of all those dang smoke-machines they call automobeels. They say me and my workers can just learn to make those horseless carriages. Horse hocky!!

    Change is gonna come, they said. First they made a law that you had to pick up your horse manure. Then they made it illegal for a horse to plop on the street. They outlawed plopping!! Horses gonna plop. How can it be against the law?

    Mark my word. One day they will run out of their precious petrol then what? Run wires to all their automobeels for Edison’s magic electricity? What are those automobeel makers going to do then? Learn to make electric ones? Maybe they can put a windmill on every automobeel. – William Zachariah Teach

      That’s something we don’t see often, a snob elitist making cruel ridicule of working people for not keeping up with progress. IOW, ‘fuck you dirt person’. If you’d just die and get it over with all would be perfect in our perfect world of all leftist communists.

      Old song, still all lies. But the ruthless disregard of the working man still stinks like the philosophical shit it is.

      Let’s not see reality rather let’s stick with the jerkoff joe as he falls off his bike like the cunt he is watching America melt like his faggot ben & jerry’s ice cream.

      FJB and his jerkoff followers. Worst fake pres ever. Worst followers ever.

        The fire-cunt blames us for what Teach’s great grandpa wrote over a century ago!

        The point he/she misses is that technological progress continues. The fire-cunt’s great-great grandpa complained that horse-drawn steamer pumps were putting fire wagon pullers out of work!

        Letter to the Pensacola Pluto c1871:

        “Dag nabbit! How many strong men will be put out of work by these new-fangled horse-drawn fire wagons? How long will it take to retrain them to be horse tenders or horse manure scoopers? “Learn to scoop” the elites say. And who is going to grow the alfalfa for all these horses?”

    Agreed-JoNova isn’t the one wanting to burn down millions of trees, she’s just reporting on the subject. This is a difficult concept for some to understand…

    Teach !
    Don’t worry about the future so much! Remember your panic over the 15$ minimum wage in some cities? You were in a complete stste of panic over “job loses”
    Or Target having gender neutral rest rooms.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      The Fauci Flu took care of $15 min. wage. Besides, when you’re collecting 50k a year sitting on your ass why work at any price? Panic over job losses? Why when we just pay’em? The fuckin government threw 50 million people out of work because of a virus. Then they started to unemploy people who refused to take a fake and dangerous “vaccine” then they started shutting down energy. Right now the “official” unemployment is 3.6%? It’s really 25% if you count people who aren’t looking and refuse to work, 35% if you count all the filthy illegals the FJB junta has brought in to vote dem.

      You’re all liars and thats all you’ll ever be.

      What Brandon said, read it. As to boys using girls toilets, maybe you are not keeping up with the sexual assaults.

      Or John worrying about oil companies and price gouging!

  6. CarolAnn says:

    Dear Hairy, shortages or high demand cause prices to rise. Rising prices mean oil companies make more money. If you don’t like high prices, shortages or the oil companies making more money STOP VOTING DEMOCRAT, STUPID. Especially after this retard told you exactly what he was going to do during his campaign!
