green jobs?

Even the lefty nyt is saying the green jobs bonanza promised by bo is a pipe dream. bo is trying to create the demand for these jobs, which are heavily subsidized. He has only to look to The Kingdom of Spain to understand this does not work. Let the market decide!

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.

“I won’t say I’m not frustrated,” said Van Jones, an Oakland activist who served briefly as Mr. Obama’s green-jobs czar before resigning under fire after conservative critics said he had signed a petition accusing the Bush administration of deliberately allowing the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a claim Mr. Jones denies.

A study released in July by the non-partisan Brookings Institution found clean-technology jobs accounted for just 2 percent of employment nationwide and only slightly more — 2.2 percent — in Silicon Valley. 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.

Just this week I got a promo card from a GREEN Party candidate in High Park/Parkdale and I was shocked to see that it was Justin Trottier who has never told people about his anti-religion stance coming for the GREEN's Socialism/Communism doctrine. It all makes sense now because he promote Gay Marriage as equal for raising children and he bashes the Catholic School system because his tax dollars should not fund group that are gigots against gays.

Well Mr.Trottier....you claim to own a bicycle and have a dog and that use play your piano and enjoy
using the local parks.
Does he have any clue for the carbon footprint to make a bicycle
and supply the rubber,oil,grease,and plastics to make-up that bike, and the slave labour or energy to ship that bike from China by Diesel powered cargo ships that spew soot and toxins, then the truck or train ride to get to his home as he lives GREEN.
Then the Dog, it produce waste that must go to a land fill . The pet foods can come from nations that have starving people but the fishing Industry needs to divert that food to processing plants for canned pet food and not local HUMAN'S.
His piano needs trees and paint along with plastics and copper and metal for the strings, worse if it's elecronic for the toxic circuit boards shipped to china for re-cycling.
Mr.Trottier had his BIO and he has had Tax-Funded employment as he rants that his Tax money should not go to people that don't follow his suicide-pact with Al Gore's Church of the Global Warming zombies.
This Green Party water melon didn't have the guts to be honest that he's Green outside but RED inside to ban all religion and have the STATE own everything as he feeds of the peons in his Palace as the leader that will recue me form Freedom and Liberty.
Justin wants to do the thinking for us, and what a fraudster that i plan to expose in my area because he lied abour Equality for gays and females, he wants to destroy all marriage and any public sign of Faiths. Cheri Dinovo currently pretend to be for equality but she endorse the child-abuse and pedophilia in the PRIDE parade by naked men flashing their penis at little girls.

Poor Justin, he now looks like a homosexual Socialist who cares more about his dog that Humans because that bike will kill low income workers by the pre-sale damage of pollution and slave labour.
Gotta love those closet REDS that are too yellow to admit they only have Green exteriors to get elected.

Jsutin, I coming for you and I'll be at the September meeting to ask you in public to explain the bike, the dog, the piano and the utopia you want to purge religion for the globe. How dare you boast of your " Centre For Inquiry" as if you are some smug/elite high brow that knows more than me or other canadians.
You remind me of John Moore from CFRB who mocks caller that don't buy the AGW dogma,he too has a bike, dog and big house that eats power and makes a carbon footprint 5x what I do while he calls ME the evile consumer.

Scratch a Greeny and you'll find a Socialist Eugenics supporter.
