Green Job Killer

Green disaster maybe. But maybe that’s the point. A lot of folks thing the big O’ just wants to use green policies to make us all red. Logically, it would seem that way, wouldn’t it? It could also be that he is just such an arrogant ass that he thinks because it’s his idea this time it will work.

Part of that Obama “fundamental” change is the overhaul of the basis of the economy from what works to what doesn’t work. One thing that doesn’t work is the ‘green economy.” A report from Chris Horner shows just how much of a failure the green economy is.

Pajamas Media has received a leaked internal assessment produced by Spain’s Zapatero administration. The assessment confirms the key charges previously made by non-governmental Spanish experts in a damning report exposing the catastrophic economic failure of Spain’s “green economy” initiatives.

On eight separate occasions, President Barack Obama has referred to the “green economy” policies enacted by Spain as being the model for what he envisioned for America.

This alarmed Obama so much that he sent someone with a vested interest in the green economy (someone besides Al Gore) to stifle the report

Later came the revelation that Obama administration senior Energy Department official Cathy Zoi — someone with serious publicized conflict of interest issues — demanded an urgent U.S. response to the damaging report from the non-governmental Spanish experts so as to protect the Obama administration’s plans.

It doesn’t save money. It doesn’t save jobs. It cost more and it kills jobs.

The government report does not expressly confirm the highest-profile finding of the non-governmental report: that Spain’s “green economy” program cost the country 2.2 jobs for every job “created” by the state. However, the figures published in the government document indicate they arrived at a job-loss number even worse than the 2.2 figure from the independent study.

They are spending $750,000 per “green” job.
