Quote of the day

From Megan McArdle:
Green jobs have become the ginseng of progressive politics: a sort of broad-spectrum snake oil that cures whatever happens to ail you.
Real environmentalism would encourage people to use less energy, therefore there would likely be fewer jobs in the energy sector.

Smart energy policy would simply raise the cost of fossil fuels via a carbon tax or cap and trade. There should be no subsidies for renewable energy, because energy subsidies encourage people to waste energy.
