Renewable Power Australia – Wind Power Fails Again. No Jobs, Either

March 22, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill claims wind power will not just power his state but create jobs. But not only does the power go out, the jobs in renewable energy have dived from  2360 to 710 in just four years. Which means his wind towers are just monuments to green madness: […]

The Buffalo Billion Fraud And Bribery Scheme

September 29, 2016 by


Corruption and pay-to-play, a symbol of everything they’re doin By Marita Noon ~ When New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo gushed over SolarCity’s new solar panel factory in Buffalo, New York, the audience, likely, didn’t grasp the recently revealed meaning of his words: “It is such a metaphor—a symbol of everything we’re doing.” The 1.2-million-square-foot […]

America In Lockdown

Green Jobs: Surely You’re Joking, Mr. President

July 27, 2013 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ In his speech at Knox College, President Obama laid out his plan for the Detroitification of America: higher taxes, higher spending, increased minimum wages, more mandates, and rerouting the path of upward mobility through tried-and-failed social programs. He blames unfettered markets for taking America away from the halcyon days of […]

Garbage Collecting A Green Job? According To Government, Yes!

March 23, 2013 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ As we have noted (here, here, here, and here), the BLS definition of green jobs is so bizarre that the total counts are meaningless. For instance, according to the BLS, the septic-tank and portable-toilet servicing industry has nearly three times as many green jobs as are in the solar, wind, […]

The Hope-a-Nomics Disaster: One Company’s Horror Story

November 11, 2012 by


By Michelle Malkin ~ President Obama promises to move the country forward with his recycled pledge of five million green jobs.

Green Jobs Go 0-for-4

November 2, 2012 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ The Administration’s green jobs initiatives appear to be the Detroit Tigers of the policy world—they are 0-for-4 in the major reports on their success. In the past year, there have been four reports on green jobs by the Department of Labor: two from the department’s inspector general’s office and two […]

The Left Knows No Lows

August 10, 2012 by


“Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction.” –John Witherspoon Congress may be on vacation, but the presidential campaign is heating up. Barack Obama knows he’s in trouble — perpetually bad economic news has him grasping at straws and making some of the more […]

July 10, 2012 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ Back in March, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released a study showing our economy had 3.1 million green jobs. Recently, it issued another green jobs study with a headlining number of 854,700 green jobs. Don’t worry—the economy did not lose 2 million green jobs in three months. There were […]

Exploding The “Green Jobs” Myth

June 10, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ This is just amazing. The following video shows some questioning about what constitutes as ‘green jobs’. The person asking the questions is the House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) and the respondent is the Bureau of Labor Statistics Acting Commissioner Josh Galvin, who was reluctant to appear, something that becomes […]

Obama’s To-Do List: Clean Energy Over Taxmaggedon

May 10, 2012 by


By Romina Boccia ~ During a speech this week, President Obama presented Congress with a 5-point to-do list, which, as the President proudly proclaimed, would fit on a sticky note. When it comes to unleashing the economy and creating jobs, his suggestions are only worthy of a sticky note. It is particularly telling of the […]

A Bad Year for Obama’s Green Dream

December 30, 2011 by


By Mike Brownfield For President Barack Obama, 2011 began with a bang — a bold pronouncement that his green dream for America would bring forth a jobs explosion and a new economy fueled by alternative energy, a vision he likened to President John F. Kennedy’s “moon shot” in the 1960s. Much to Obama’s chagrin, the […]

Obama’s Green Jobs Program “Infused with Politics at Every Level”

December 27, 2011 by


By Mike Brownfield In a damning report, The Washington Post details its investigation of President Barack Obama’s much-hyped green jobs program. Its findings? Politics, not policy, underpinned the White House’s calculations. From The Post report: Meant to create jobs and cut reliance on foreign oil, Obama’s green-technology program was infused with politics at every level, The […]

A $230,000 Taxpayer-Funded ‘Green Jobs’ Website, but No Jobs Listed

December 3, 2011 by


By Mike Brownfield How’s this for a waste of taxpayer money? According to Energy& Environment News, the Department of Energy is paying $230,000 for a website to promote career paths in the green energy sector–and it has, ironically, prohibited the listing of actual jobs in the industry. Here’s the report: The Department of Energy has awarded […]

Blowing Money on Green Jobs + More

The Patriot Post  Chronicle The Foundation “No government, any more than an individual, will long be respected without being truly respectable; nor be truly respectable, without possessing a certain portion of order and stability.” –James Madison Editorial Exegesis “The green jobs subsidy story gets more embarrassing by the day.

‘Green Jobs’ Woes Move to Labor Department

October 5, 2011 by


By Lachlan Markay While the Energy Department’s efforts to create “green jobs” have received significant attention – and criticism – since the collapse of solar company Solyndra, another federal agency may soon be in the spotlight for its lackluster performance in stimulating the economy through employment in the green technology sector. The Labor Department’s “Green […]

Four ‘Green Job’ Realities

September 23, 2011 by


By Nicolas Loris Solyndra’s bankruptcy has put federal spending for green projects under the microscope—and rightly so. Green jobs programs have been a profoundly wasteful use of taxpayers’ money and are doing more harm to the economy than helping it. They don’t even provide the promised grand environmental benefits. It’s important to keep these points […]

The Green Jobs, Clean Energy Scam

September 9, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba There will probably never be a definitive calculation of how much money the United States (and other nations) has wasted on Green programs, litigation, grants, research, and projects such as those involving “renewable” or “clean” energy. It will surely add up to several trillion because it has been going on for a […]

The Great Renewable Energy Scam Continues

August 25, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba I recently received a news release from The Council of State Governments headlined “New Report: Renewable Energy Worth Investment for Southern States” that touted “job creation, environment and public health” as benefits. It was filled with lies. I had never heard of the CSG before, but a visit to its website was […]

Networks Hardly Criticize Obama Green Jobs Flop

August 23, 2011 by


By Julia A Seymour While campaigning President Obama promised to create 5 million “green” jobs, and shortly into his term he announced a “task force” to do just that. His stimulus package included tax credits for renewable energy companies, allotted funds for weatherization and more. Now with the economy once again on shaky ground the […]

Are Green Jobs ‘Gone with the Wind’?

August 23, 2011 by


By Ernest Istook President Obama plans a big jobs announcement—right after he finishes his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.  Expect him to say that green jobs are the key to recovery—that they will generate millions of jobs and a new era of prosperity. Oh, you’ve already heard that one?  So has everyone else.  Even The New […]

Mr. Green Jobs Boondoggle Rides Again

August 12, 2011 by


By Michelle Malkin Van Jones, President Obama’s disgraced green jobs czar, is back with a radical progressive plan to rescue America … from his old boss. The problem, posits Jones, is that his fellow community organizer in the White House hasn’t spent enough, regulated enough or taxed enough to achieve their perverse version of the […]
