The Green Gettin’ is Good


Yahoo reposts an item today on high-paying “green” jobs.    I love this little detail (emphasis mine):

Fueled in part by massive federal funding for environmental projects included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) — better known as the stimulus bill — green jobs have a bright future. There’s a broad range of occupations that allow you to make a difference, so there is likely a green job for you no matter what your interest and skills.
Fueled in part? That’s like saying wind and solar energy are competitive, thanks in part to massive government subsidies and burdensome state renewable-portfolio standards.    Curiously absent from the piece is any mention of the untold numbers of jobs that will be lost (as Spain’s experience has demonstrated), thanks in no small part to “green” energy policy.
