Van Jones, a long time leader of vision and commitment to green for all, has been the latest target of hypercritical personal attacks by extreme conservatives in Washington. He has stepped down citing that fighting the attacks would draw attention away from his mission of an inclusive green economy that is based upon the most fundamental of American values: equality, justice, and opportunity for all.
The article failed to mention a single "personal attack", simply because the objections to him were not personal. His own words drew criticism, along with his beliefs. So now when we object to someone based upon their beliefs this is now personal?
The utopian "progressive wet dream" about an inclusive greens economy is simply a bed time fable to the masses of automotons who sacrifice in their own lives while the elitists use all means necessary to make their own lives comfortable.
Do not be duped by cheap, remedial rhetorical drivel,
“The study’s results,” Dr. Calzada wrote in the paper’s introduction, “demonstrate how such ‘green jobs’ policy clearly hinders Spain’s way out of the current economic crisis, even while U.S. politicians insist that rushing into such a scheme will ease their own emergence from the turmoil. … This study marks the very first time a critical analysis of the actual performance and impact has been made.”
The following represent some of the study’s key findings:
NOTE: According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Spain’s annual emissions of carbon dioxide have increased by nearly 50 percent since the nation began its aggressive push to subsidize and support “green jobs.”
These extreme conservatives, opponents of progress and social justice, have again taken the personal attack strategy over the issue debate strategy. Its a very pathetic strategy indeed.
The man is a communist. That means his ideals are completely antithetical to the premise of liberty, libertairan thought, and free markets.
Social justice is steeped in Marxism. Where as libertarian ideals demands equal opportunity, social justice seeks equity in outcome. So some politician steels someone elses capital, and decides who sould get it. I would rather have a thief rip me off, that way when the theft is done, the theif is gone and I am done with them. For a self promoting politician, I have to hear their blathering after they rip me off about why they need to have the legal right to steal from me.
I am not suprised that a communist would want social justice. Benjamin Frankin once said, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.". Social justic will fall on its face because it is neither just nor honest.
As far as progress is concerned:
A rapidly growing literature promises that a massive program of government mandates, subsidies, and forced technological interventions will reward the nation with an economy brimming with green jobs. Not only will these jobs improve the environment, but they will be high paying, interesting, and provide collective rights. This literature is built on mythologies about economics, forecasting, and technology.
Myth: Everyone understands what a green job is.
Reality: No standard definition of a green job exists.
Myth: Creating green jobs will boost productive employment.
Reality: Green jobs estimates include huge numbers of clerical, bureaucratic, and administrative positions that do not produce goods and services for consumption.
Myth: Green jobs forecasts are reliable.
Reality: The green jobs studies made estimates using poor economic models based on dubious assumptions.
Myth: Green jobs promote employment growth.
Reality: By promoting more jobs instead of more productivity, the green jobs described in the literature encourage low-paying jobs in less desirable conditions. Economic growth cannot be ordered by Congress or by the United Nations. Government interference - such as restricting successful technologies in favor of speculative technologies favored by special interests - will generate stagnation.
Myth: The world economy can be remade by reducing trade and relying on local production and reduced consumption without dramatically decreasing our standard of living.
Reality: History shows that nations cannot produce everything their citizens need or desire. People and firms have talents that allow specialization that make goods and services ever more efficient and lower-cost, thereby enriching society.
Myth: Government mandates are a substitute for free markets.
Reality: Companies react more swiftly and efficiently to the demands of their customers and markets, than to cumbersome government mandates.
Myth: Imposing technological progress by regulation is desirable.
Reality: Some technologies preferred by the green jobs studies are not capable of efficiently reaching the scale necessary to meet today's demands and could be counterproductive to environmental quality.
In this Article, we survey the green jobs literature, analyze its assumptions, and show how the special interest groups promoting the idea of green jobs have embedded dubious assumptions and techniques within their analyses. Before undertaking efforts to restructure and possibly impoverish our society, careful analysis and informed public debate about these assumptions and prescriptions are necessary.

Bro. Thanks for your response to this commie lover's belated effort and providing the links about the green jobs!
So far GB show is concerned I have no personal liking for Glen Beck due his pro war views Obama is making in Afpak with a great cost to the American tax payer while their unemployment stands at double digit!
And he also happens to be an Islamophob to boot
Having said that, what I see is that he provides information like an entertainer that others don't and the info he put out for people on Jones was damaging enough plus what this administration is doing was mind boggling...
What is obvious Obama's place is crawling with Zionist tripe with some black socialists and Papal agents way out of proportion with their respective demographics are making monkey of everybody ....and no one dares to speak about the disaster that has hit America and what else is being brewed by this gathering of witches...the working Americans are either MIA politically or are totally bamboozled by this kumbya Marxist crowd!
The Bushies are too afraid to speak cuz of their past sins of their fathers...
If any who speaks is Cheney who is worried about his investment or his cronies in the MIC!
This Chicago Gang have hijacked guilt ridden, self absorbed simpletons through a high spending campaign with flair of Hollywood rhetoric ...they are tearing down America brick by brick...offering unearned entitlements; a Marxism in reverse on the backs of the shrinking middle class...
Even Glen is afraid to point out the Zionist background of the characters he puts on the blackboard for his show for people to watch out ...
The Marxist campaign is going full bore around the world... watch out guys!
And who is getting killed under this green president? the jobs in US and Muslims abroad
I hope the Americans wake up from the hubris before the place goes to dogs, wouldn't matter what color!
