Fake 'green' campaign kills real jobs

Here is an example from Ontario of all that is wrong about fake environmentalism: false dogma with real economic implications which just happen to be negative. All very self-explanatory and a direct result of ignoring economics when trying to determine what is and is not meant by sustainability.

Giving a program a green name doesn't make it eco-friendly. Sound policy makes things eco-friendly: and sound policy integrates economics, environment and society, it doesn't ignore fiscal realities, jobs or prosperity -- well not unless its just pious politics (sorry did I say that out loud?).

Or maybe, we should just call it Obamanomics.
