It's the same crap story all around the globe: "Green will save us all!"
“However, Friends of the Earth (FOE) said there is scope for thousands of jobs to be created in research and development, retrofitting homes for energy-efficiency, and renewable power generation.”
In other words, bureaucratic and government subsidized “jobs”.
These guys think you create jobs by legislating them.
The way you create jobs is by creating an environment that rewards profits and income.
There is no businessman that ever starts a business because he wants to create jobs!! Jobs are a byproduct of profits.
