  •  Crackdown in GHG would CREATE jobs. (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Fundamentals:

    1. Corporate profits, and corporate cash-on-hand, are at record highs.

    2. Mass unemployment is not cured by #1 because of lack of demand.

    Cracking down on greenhouse gas emissions would create demand for green energy; this demand would create green energy jobs. This would help, not hurt, the economy because it would put a chunk of that idle capital (cash-on-hand) to work.
