Temper Tantrum Tuesday: Green Jobs

The New York Times is reporting that the Senate’s inaction on the climate change bill has cost the US roughly 2 million jobs. Clean Energy Trade Dispute

The reason the GOP Senators give for denying 2 million Americans jobs is that adding 2 million jobs will cost jobs. I think those Senators missed the episode of Sesame Street where they covered Adding and Subtracting.

Here is a message to GOP Senators, when you add 2 million jobs it is called gaining jobs not losing them.

The money is available for investing in clean energy and it will go to the countries that offer incentives to invest in it. Since it is an infant industry as it grows up it will generate far more money than is put into research, which will be taxed, lowering the deficit. Clean energy needs to be produced locally freeing us from dependence on imports from terrorist sponsoring countries making our country safer.

Even if you do not agree with the 97% of scientists who say that man-made climate change is real the Climate Change bill is good for our country so learn the difference between gaining and losing and vote for the damn bill.

Politics is so often short-sighted and perverse.


I wish more regular people spotted these things.

I think that if they actually new how to add and subtract they'd be able to balance the budget..

or when they mean losing jobs they're talking about the maids,hookers and mistresses that will be out of work when the pay-off money from the oil companies stops.
