Jones and his agenda! Well maybe his face isn't back but his ideas are in full force! "It's clear why such an effort is so important. Building a robust clean energy sector is how we will create the jobs of the future, jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced," Obama said at the White House.
Figures released Friday showed unemployment stubbornly stuck at 10 percent.
He also renewed a call by Vice President Al Gore for Congress to approve an additional $5 billion to help create more such jobs.
Cause 787 BILLION wasn't enough!
Who here wants more debt?
Before the Industrial Revolution, do you actually think we had clean air and streets? We had 5 foot high mounds of horse shit piled around cities, open sewage running in the streets, nasty germ-infested drinking water, etc. Try reading this book to hear what New York City was like prior to the industrial revolution:
While I strongly support alternative forms of energy, it makes more sense for us to cut back our current use, rather than patchwork and try to fill in with other energy sources. Most GW plans, like carbon credits, don't really help this planet at all.

Let's face facts, man made pollution in HIGH QUANTITIES AS IS COMMON WITH FACTORIES AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS OF MANUFACTURING has serious implications for the health of humans and the quality of long term sustenance on this planet. Prior to the industrial revolution, these issues didn't exist. The problems that exist now are man-made and the only way to fix them is to create man-made solutions.There are ways to continue manufacturing without the emission of cubic tons of atmospheric pollutants. It will ultimately create jobs as the technology to keep these forces working will require increased manpower--but it isn't going to happen tomorrow. You have heard it before, I will say it again--as a society we need to be patient and find ways to be a part of the pollution solution and stop making excuses to continue supporting the atmospheric problems.
