While I realize that falling oil prices have a huge impact on employment, is that impact justification for artificially inflated prices?
Unfortunately, the transition to cleaner, more renewable energy sources can't happen without a similar transition with respect to employment in the
field of energy production.
Let me put it this way, should we quit looking for a cure to cancer or AIDS because of the negative employment ramifications for the millions of
people who currently work treating those patients? I think not!
If those people are smart, they'll be seeking out new employment opportunities and training, possibly even in the clean energy field.
