David Roberts of Mother Jones tells us the truth about Obama's 'Green Job' revolution:

Does the administrative assistant in the front office of a solar power


company count? How about the vanpool driver? Using extremely generous


assumptions, energy economist Roger Bezdek calculated that green jobs


accounted for about 5 percent of the US workforce in 2006. That's not


shabby, but it's a long way from a clean, green economy.
