There has always been something delusional about the idea of government creating “green jobs”. Knowing that, then perhaps this makes sense:

Van Jones is President Barack Obama’s newly appointed “Green Jobs Czar”

Jones’ official title is Special Advisor on Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation for the White House Council on Environmental Quality.


Like a character out of The Big Chill, Van Jones seems to have evolved from radical activist to Establishment insider. Perhaps only a left-wing administration incapable of recognizing irony would put a self-described communist in charge of creating jobs.
