Green jobs

Subsidizing renewable energy in the U.S. may destroy two jobs for every one created if Spain’s experience with windmills and solar farms is any guide.

Politicians are aware that they can always claim credit for a job "created" but might escape blame for a job destroyed. FDR got re-elected three times by exploiting that.

I found this whilst surfing and it may help the millions of people who believe in AGW but know absolutely nothing about it. Ask most people in the street how much CO2 is in the atmosphere and they will tell you anything from five to twenty percent. It's true I tried it on several occasions.
Now take a look at this picture on the link below and imagine 380 of those dots painted red instead of black. Imagine further 4% of those 380 dots coloured green.
This is the amount of man-made carbon dioxide in our atmosphere.
