Green Jobs Are Obama’s Pipe Dream

In the Bay Area as in much of the country, the green economy is not proving to be the job-creation engine that many politicians envisioned. President Obama once pledged to create five million green jobs over 10 years. Gov. Jerry Brown promised 500,000 clean-technology jobs statewide by the end of the decade. But the results so far suggest such numbers are a pipe dream.

Rather than adding jobs, the study found, the sector actually lost 492 positions from 2003 to 2010 in the South Bay, where the unemployment rate in June was 10.5 percent.

    I don’t think America will reelect this person. I think America wants to go in a different direction.

    If you actually believed this “green job” balogna you only have yourself to blame.

  3. Sean Peake says:

    What he meant was “greens” jobs. You know, caddies, pro shop workers, and groundskeepers.

  4. Latitude says:

    ……he didn’t mention eliminating 15 million jobs to create that 5 million

  5. Mike Davis says:

    The only people creating “Green” jobs are those looking to receive the subsidies and guaranteed loans. When they have milked the system for all it is worth they fold the company so they can find another way to fleece someone!

    “If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, & are $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing BIG spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget & debt, reduced to a level that we can understand.” – Dave Ramsey
