"You remember green jobs, don't you? The stimulus bill included $5 billion of funds intended to grow green industries and employ hard-luck construction and tech workers. The prime mover in the 'green jobs' movement is Green for All, whose president Van Jones was tapped as the "Green Jobs Czar" for the administration. Jones was hounded out of his job, done in by a 9/11 'truth' petition that had his name on it (he denies he signed it), but the bigger problem for green jobs was that they didn't seem to exist. Meanwhile, Green for All has kept chugging." (06/28/11)
