green energy jobs schemes are like pyramid schemes. the entire thing is dependent upon federal subsidies of a system the produces far less energy for the buck. sorry guys fossil fuels and atomic are still the big guys when it comes to producing energy at an affordable price.

This is true ... until fossil fuels kill us ... at which time cost won't make any difference.
No point investing to innovate to avoid that future I guess.

'Green jobs' kill far too many non-green jobs to be feasible, and cannot exist without wasting subsidies on them a la Solyndra.

Please provide any credible source that green jobs kill non-green jobs, and at a rate that is not feasible.

Also, are you aware of the government's investment success rate in private businesses, including Solyndra?

Problem is, non-green industries pollute, which produce greenish-colored people, who are not long for this world.
Green jobs do not kill...in fact, help do the opposite. It's called evolving.

Because no chemicals or harm to the enviroment is done during the production or at the end of the life cycle of solar cells.

While I completely support green research, the government should not be funding companies to make something that could not stand on its own.
