An excellent commentary on CBS Moneywatch (yes, CBS!) points out the folly of green energy jobs and takes some jabs at solar and the “fad” of electric cars. The article starts this way:
In the business world, when you combine bad management, faulty science and fanatical ideology, it’s a recipe for disaster. Strangely enough, when the federal government does it, the result is the same.
I’m referring to the national green energy policy that is actually costing us jobs, hurting our economy and increasing our dependence on foreign oil — all at a time when we can least afford it. It may even be having an indirect effect on rising gas prices.
Sadly, you didn’t have to be Nostradamus to know that force-feeding an initiative this big against free market forces would end badly.*
