Could Copenhagen "Destroy Millions of American Jobs"?

"With Americans already facing double-digit unemployment, there could not be a worse time to unilaterally disarm our engines of job creation and economic growth"--Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.)-source

Well sure, it could, but will it? The word "could" here is meaningless, and a way to phrase something such that you could never be proven wrong, which is why we see it used so often. Hey, if your prediction doesn't come true, you only said it could not that it would. That said, of course such measures would destroy jobs, which makes all of the proposed global warming, excuse me, CLIMATE CHANGE government actions inherently anti-human and anti-freedom. As I've said before, even if global warming is taking place and humans are causing it, that doesn't mean there is much we can do to stop it, and certainly many of the solutions would not be worth the cost of implementing them.

  2. So Mickey, she's just another Big Government Republican? What a surprise! I'm shocked!

  3. It may "create" jobs, depending on whether we decide to make anything ourselves ever again. It may go to buying foreign products if our climate nay-saying retards our developments of necessary products.

    If there is a failure, it's the private sector. They have been given chance after chance to get their act together. Industry gets funding, tax breaks, incentives, and I'm pretty sure even Senatorial handjobs. Why aren't we making semi-efficient stuff yet?
