Remember those 5 million “green jobs” that our former commander in chief of the economy promised to create in order to “stimulate job growth” and America’s transition to green energy? In the event, it was fossil fuel fracking, not green energy, which helped to lower the price of oil, revived the U.S. economy and secured Barack Obama’s reelection.
