Capitalism and climate change

Of course Fox and other right wing media will decry the loss of jobs due to the Keystone pipeline cancellation and Biden’s moves to limit further drilling on public land – and they would be right. Jobs in those areas will be lost.  However jobs always get lost when new technology comes along – it is the capitalist way. Meanwhile more jobs will come in new areas of endeavor that will more than make up for the job losses AND have better results for the economy and such issues as climate change. The reality is that climate change is already having a negative impact on the US economy and it is only going to get bigger. Trump’s failure to take it seriously will end up in history of one of his biggest failings as a President. Biden knows the time is now and he has no choice but to react. Some jobs will be lost, more will be made. Long live capitalism.
