Families in ‘green’ states suffer while families in energy states find jobs


AOL Jobs News reports:

Energy-producing states have experienced unemployment levels well below those of other states in recent years, thanks in part to a boom in energy exploration that’s been driven by high oil prices…

…North Dakota, Alaska and Oklahoma, all substantial oil producers, along with West Virginia, known for its coal reserves and production, were among the top 10 job creators in the six months ending in June, according to the Gallup Job Creation Index.

North Dakota, which topped the list of 50 states and the District of Columbia, has seen an energy bonanza. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the Plains state boosted daily oil production 84 percent in the two years ending March 2011, the most recent data available.

“This is yet more proof the only thing so-called ‘green energy’ powers is unemployment and misery,” said American Tradition Partnership Executive Director. “Environmentalists’ call for higher priced, less efficient energy drives up the costs of producing goods and services, forcing employers to cut jobs in order to stay afloat.”

“Environmentalists honestly believe they must spread poverty in order to save the planet from mythical threats.”

Nine of the ten worst states for job creation are under Expensive Energy Mandates.  Expensive Energy Mandates are bail-out laws forcing a state’s consumers to buy ‘green’ energy against their will by mandating a specific percentage of a state’s electricity from so-called ‘renewable’ resources.

Failing “renewables” who shower green politicians with campaign contributions, like solar and wind, are included in the mandatory purchasing laws while more realistic renewables, like hydroelectric, are left out by green politicians who like how Expensive Energy Mandates create a political pipeline that converts consumers’ electricity bills into campaign contributions from “green” speculators.
