Are Green Jobs Promising the Moon?

Christian Sandström discusses the effectiveness of green jobs, which refer to those that aid in the improvement of the environment and lessen the destructive impact on the planet. He shades light on their true efficacy, as well as on the lack of evidence to support a positive outcome. He tells that many politicians have used the term to persuade voters claiming they will reactivate the economy with the green industry, though, there are cases which have proved the opposite. Furthermore, Sandström states his concerns about the green industry not being self-sufficient and how it depends on subsidies to grow; funding that eventually is charged in the form of taxes upon citizens. Overall, he urges to reevaluate the place of the renewable energy industry.
