Environmentalists (university students with NO job experience) want us to embrace solar and wind as environment friendly alternatives to oil, gas and coal. They spew on and on about massive green jobs. So how is that going?
The Energy Department says on its website that the $1.2 billion loan to help build the California Valley Solar Ranch in San Luis Obispo County, a project that will help create 15 permanent jobs, which adds up to the equivalent of $80 million in taxpayer money for each job.
But the Energy Department stands by the project.
“This project underwent many months of rigorous technical, financial and legal due diligence by career employees in the DOE loan program,” Energy spokesman Damien LaVera said in a statement to FoxNews.com. “It was approved for one reason only: because it meets all the requirements of the program – helping America win the clean energy race and create entire new industries for American workers.”
Even with 1.2 Billion the firm is in trouble and they were only going to create 15 permanent jobs? I would love to get me some of that action, as would Gore and Strong. Stop listening to the uneducated kids of the environment, who do not understand the meaning of a real job, start listening to the people who have to pay the energy bills.
As far as the Keystone pipeline goes, forget about those bird choppers and solar panels, that create no jobs, and build that pipeline, in the short run, you will employ many people in areas that desperately need employment, and in the long run, you will save money on energy.
When you give kids money, they always go to the nearest corner store and spend it on candy and pop, then they complain of a bellyache. Does anyone wonder why all the "clean energy" companies are going bankrupt? Do any of you know anyone who owns a "smart car" or even a "hybrid"?
The wolves like Gore and Strong have been exposed. The sheep have not yet realized that they were duped, they are too busy protesting Wall Street now that their "global warming" scam has failed.
Funny how lefties always have a cause to protest, while the rest of us are busy actually working at jobs in the private sector, supporting them.
If the Americans chicken out of the Keystone project because of the Ecochildren, Canada has another huge buyer of our oil, and it's name is China, with India a close second. How would we get it there? Look at this:
So far the usual activists are protesting both pipelines, but I predict that both pipelines will be built, and eastern Canada will benefit just like they do now.
Build those pipelines and save money. If the environmentalists are so concerned about Mother Earth, I have a garden that needs to be rototilled!
