    The "green economy" is supposed to be a win-win situation, as massive subsidies for renewable energy sources and other "clean" technologies would help both the environment and the economic recovery. The facts on the ground tell a different story, though.

    This whole "green" movement is nothing but a scam. It's just like that environmental whacko bullshit only with more government emphasis. We're so interested in saving the planet, saving the economy of other nations, and saving Wall Street that we can't even save our own asses.

    No. Green is the New Red.

    Green jobs have driven the Spanish economy into high unemployment. The same will happen here if the government interferes with what should be free market decisions.

    It's all about the Money.

    Goldman Sachs is part of Al Gore's investment scam to profit from this mess.

    I'm yet to see a "Green" project that wasn't somehow funded with taxpayer Dollars.

    My bro married a German gal over 20 years ago. I remember talking a bit of politics w/her back then. She said that there's a saying over there - "green is red".
