More Stimulus Waste: Green Jobs Training Program Fails to Create Jobs

Just over three years ago, Vice-President Joe Biden announced a new $500 million stimulus funded jobs training program.  The new initiative would be aimed at training unemployed workers to compete and attain employment in the administration's coveted field of 'green jobs'.  At the time of his announcement, Biden stated that the program would create "real live jobs for a real live future".

Is the Obama Administration Still Artificially Inflating Job Numbers By Counting 'Lives Touched'?

When last month's unemployment rate took a sudden and unexpected plunge to 7.8%, conservatives who thought there was something amiss took a beating in the media.  Jack Welch was particularly excoriated for a tweet he sent out suggesting that the numbers were fabricated, and others who had similar doubts were labeled condescendingly as 'unemployment rate truthers'.

Oregon: A Green Jobs Laboratory

Proponents of green jobs in the state of Oregon have been touting its successes, claiming the creation of “thousands of jobs”.  Borrowing from the narrative bellowing out of the White House, the Oregonian green jobs proponents claim tremendous job growth in a state mired in stubbornly high unemployment and awash in green energy subsidies.  The plain truth is that the spigot of subsidies to this green industry is rapidly fl

The "Green" Jobs Canard

For too long, politicians, environmentalists and subsidized proponents of “green” jobs have been peddling the notions that “investing” in green technologies is the illuminating endeavor and beneficent job creator of our time.  With scant evidence, these green jobs postulates are bulwarked by so much hot air it rivals the amount of subsidized dollars used to sustain them.

Climate Change Debate Continues

There are some high minded idealists who have fundamentally believed that human reason can be used to immediately and deliberately contrive a solution to any problem, no matter the magnitude.  Modern liberalism, with its roots in the French rationalist school of thought, believes that there are no potential errors or limits to human reason.  Even the most impossible task of unilaterally altering the world’s climate is possible.These propositions represent the indefatigable spirit of hubris and ignorance.

Where is Your Green Job Now?

Here's a funny story from Spain.  So an economist walks into a bar.... and says that if the government tried to make a green economy that would fail.  And everyone thought that was silly.  And it turned out the economist was totally right. See? It's funny because it's true.  And it's kind of what we've all been saying all along. Investors Business Daily brings us this tale of imaginary jobs, wasted money, and bad economies:
