Want to Create Jobs? Reduce Fossil Fuel Use


Want to Create Jobs? Reduce Fossil Fuel Use

Basav Sen

We’ve all heard claims that fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas are major job creators. President Trump says so all the time.

But it turns out that developing and installing the technology to reduce fossil fuel use — known in the industry as “energy efficiency” — creates many more jobs than fossil fuels.


Yeah, the green economy. That is the way to go. The problem is that it is seen as a liberal issue. Therefore the right wing is for fossil fuels. Even though continued burning of fossil fuels will probably result in the collapse of civilization. If is more important for the right wingers to oppose liberals than save civilization. That might seem like a strange view to hold but when you look at all the crazy stuff they believe it is obvious you are not talking about rational people. The are all about gut feelings and emotion.


… don’t forget terror and fear that can only be addressed by guns (sorry, rational republicans. knock, knock… are any left? in every sense of the word…).


The co-op model and the national organizational infrastructure is poised for implementation. Thinking economics? Think local and regional. Thinking organic? think urban indoor hydroponic … think creatively!! For every $1000 spent in a co-op, $1600 is generated in the local economy!

Heres a visual to download and contemplate - then hand around…


Just for once can you pull your head out of the sand or wherever it is? Elsewhere on CD there is an article, " ‘Absolute Failure’: DNC Passes Perez Resolution Reversing Ban on Donations From Fossil Fuel PACs" that totally refutes both the substance and the ideology of this post of yours. If you are as deeply attached to the DNC as your posts claim, how could you not see this coming?

“The right wing is for fossil fuels.” Poppycock. Now BOTH wings including your beloved DNC are for fossil fuels. This is what Obama’s choice of Tom Perez over Keith Ellison gave us.

Grow up and see American politics for what it is for Heaven’s sake.
