Green Jobs

Gov. Schwarzenegger talking about a oil companies trying to repeal a California global warming bill:
it’s green technology that is creating the most jobs right now in California, 10 times more than any other sector.

FLG will concede that the statistic above is correct, but that's ignoring two things. First, how many jobs aren't being created because of the proposed law? Second, how many jobs will not be created in the future because of the law?

Remember, creating green technology jobs is like creating jobs by breaking windows.
