It ain't easy being green! Obama's plan to add 5,000,000 protected green jobs, which don't produce/generate income, will end up costing us over 10,000,000 existing jobs! How is our rising unemployment, failing economy and massive debt ever going to recover from this plan?!
"For every new position that depends on energy price supports, at least 2.2 jobs in other industries will disappear"
"In Spain...wind turbines provided 11% of power demand last year, generators earn rates as much as 11 times more for renewable energy compared with burning fossil fuels"
"The premiums paid for solar, biomass, wave and wind power...translated into a $774,000 cost for each Spanish “green job” created since 2000"
“The loss of jobs could be greater if you account for the amount of lost industry that moves out of the country due to higher energy prices”

I believe we won't recover from his plan, which is exactly why I don't support it.
