  •  Have to sell renewable energy as jobs program... (6+ / 0-)

    Manufacturing, installing, and maintaining wind turbines, solar panels etc. here in America and how many permanent jobs it would create and spin off jobs it would create.  Jobs is all anybody is thinking about, and when the drilling was shut down you heard "It's killing jobs of Louisianans", and whenever we hear anti-coal, it's all about how many jobs would be lost.  

    Politics is like playing Asteroids - You go far enough to the left and you end up on the right. Or vice-versa.

      counter to that. If people are going to lose jobs, especially in the coal regions where there's no other work, then they're not going to support environmental legislation that costs their jobs. So far I haven't heard any good arguments from Dems hich are going to convine the public.
