False Choice

April 23, 2009

“The choice we face is not between saving our environment and saving our economy – it’s a choice between prosperity and decline,” is what President Obama said yesterday in Iowa when he campaigned for his cap-and-trade plans. Apparently, the Obama administration’s choice in this case is “decline.” Or why else does the ‘Science in its rightful place’ administration dismiss a study that ‘green’ jobs crowd out other jobs at a ratio of 1 to 2.2 and that only one in ten of those ‘green’ jobs turns out to be permanent? Or why else do they feel free to impose an estimated $3,900 per year of additional costs on the average American household through introducing a cap-and-trade system while according to a Rasmussen poll only 34% of voters believe that global warming is in fact anthropogenic?
