What is most troubling about Van Jones

his belief
expressed in his book The Green Collar Economy, that dramatically reducing carbon dioxide emissions not only won't cost anything but will actually benefit the economy by creating jobs. I debated this subject with Jones on a radio show last year, and my impression was that he is a true believer in the broken [window] planet fallacy. The problem is that Jones was hired not despite but because of this nutty idea, which his boss also espouses.
