"...The Green Jobs Rationale Borders on the Preposterous..."

Tuesday, 27 March 2012

Maybe we could get wind turbine supporters to transfer their allegiance to digging ditches with spoons - Dr Benjamin Zycher explains it more succinctly than it’s ever been explained before: "...use an army of workers with spoons..."

His presentation starts at 34:06 and is well worth watching in its entirety. He gets to the nub of ‘Green Jobs’ a
t 36:54, - "The Green Jobs Rationale borders on the preposterous". To paraphrase:  Governments should outlaw the use of heavy equipment for digging ditches and mandate the use of an army of workers using spoons....

"...There is no analytic difference between inefficient ditch digging and inefficient power generation as tools with which to pursue increased employment..."
