New jobs and CO2
Lots of rushing to catch on to green money or to find a job because the current one is being eliminated. But people do not draw the obvious conclusions : that any new job must create more CO2? Perhaps that's a wish. \ The new job might actually lower the amount of CO2 being produced because that's the purpose of the project. But at the best it would be several years before that's realized and in the best case it produces more CO2 from the beginning until that end-point is realized. It is very hard to find a job with analysis of a CO2 impact.
This is deeply stressing but weak logic just confuses the situation surrounding weak logic with a feeling of self betrayal. We should always revert to the logical question: does our activity support the earth and humanity or does it continue further extraction?
