IBD: A Bad Green Dream

“The Obama administration promised a green energy future. What it delivered, though, is a present filled with rancid politics, aching failure and tawdry scandal.”

… Going where few mainstream media outlets dare to tread because they don’t want to hurt the president’s re-election chances, the [Washington Post] actually took a realistic look at the White House’s $80 billion clean-technology program.

While the Post took a hard line, it was not the first left-leaning newspaper to do so. The New York Times provided similar coverage in August, reporting that “the green economy is not proving to be the job-creation engine that many politicians envisioned.”

  1. Don’t forget that in the original Greek, the fourth horseman was “green”. Though the word wouldn’t be coined for more the 1700 years later, the meaning was that Death was a zombie horseman.

    This has no relevance to anything, I just found it amusing.
