#SILENCEISTOXIC: Why isn’t anyone talking about the failure of Obama’s ‘Green Economy?’ “This piece by Andy Sullivan at Reuters is remarkable for how it highlights the monumental gap between President Obama’s promises about how going green will create hundreds of thousands of jobs and begin to transform the economy, and the actual results in the last 3 years. . . . Obama’s promises on green energy in 2008 made him sound modern, forward looking, even cool. But the truth was there for anyone who cared to see it; most of his program – including the $90 billion for green energy in the stim bill – was unrealistic and deceptive. It’s not clear that all that money added a significant amount of renewable electrical generation to the national grid that wouldn’t have been built in the first place, and plenty of evidence that much of it was misdirected (Solyndra and many other loan recipients as well as money for job training gone to waste). For all his promises, Obama’s green plans have utterly failed. The question is: Why isn’t anyone talking about this?”
