Obama and the Democrats are promoting the so-called green economy, which they claim will improve the climate while simultaneously providing more jobs. In my opinion the improving the climate part, while I doubt it, is at least arguable. The increased jobs part is a cruel hoax. It should be obvious that requiring more labor to produce the same output is a step backward, and that the jobs will be low quality. When I was young many people were concerned with the advent of cotton picking machines, because of the elimination of labor. But, the machines reduced the cost of cotton and the jobs eliminated were very low pay, and the people displaced moved on to better jobs that paid more. Here is an article that discusses the flaws in the "green" economy.
