Faulty arguments made sounding logical
In this article, the author berates Al Gore and all the "middle age hippies" are wrong to assume new high paying jobs would be created.
1 - Any new technology creates a new market and a lot of managers, sales, support and technical jobs.
2 - most of these jobs are higher paying than Burger King. Thank goodness!
3 - the government/ politicians can not create jobs. Of course not, but they can provide incentives for entrepreneurs to create jobs.
4 "the dweebs that populate the green movement need opportunities to congregate and repopulate just as much as any other unfortunate section of society" clearly show the author's bias against the "green" movement.
Look Mr. Worstall, your opinion that all the tree hugging is a waste of effort and we should just consume oil and coal like there is no tomorrow may be a self fulfilling prophecy. Hiding your head in the sand because you believe what you want or out of convenience does not change the facts of global climate change.
It is nice to hear one of you radicals logically explain why you are so full of sh*te.
