The Great Green Dilemma: How To Fail

    At least the Northeastern states aren’t suffocating their economies in the pursuit of green dreams.

    Here in California, we’ll soon (January 2012) be enjoying the winning combination of higher energy prices, fewer jobs, lower economic growth, and no change in so-called carbon pollution. For all of that, we can thank AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.

    Economist, the British newspaper, as opposed to a fiddler with economic data, has swallowed the green kool-aid, as well as other nostrums of the rabid left, like Bush Derangement Syndrome, and Obama Adulation, to the point that I seriously question the validity and usefulness of anything they have to say on any topic. Their coverage on Europe, primly cautious, matched up against their over-heated blather about American politics and policies, makes me think that there’s no such thing as “editorial policy” there. What they raise alarms about in Europe they demand in tones bordering on hysteria for the US. One the one hand, they cheer globaloney about warming and snuff critics of the junk science. On the other, they warm about grotesquely unrealistic plans hatched by greens for controlling CO2. They are so inconsistent, I worry about whether to cite and quote them at all.
