Green New Deal

The 2009 stimulus act shelled out $90 billion for clean energy. President Obama's administration said that would create 827,000 “job years” through 2012. That turns out to be a whopping $109,000 per job-year. Did that pan out? Was it worth it? Billions were allocated to modernize the electricity grid, improve energy efficiency of buildings, clean up nuclear waste and promote clean energy sources. Was that money well spent or a boondoggle? Join in a conversation about the Recovery Act's impact on the energy and financial security of America.
