    I think they get the numbers through models, similar to economic models but with environmental and population factors instead.

    yeah, because the solar industry is really filling in those gaps in employment

    nearly 2 billion in taxpayer dollars awarded to two solar companies (one is bankrupt, the other will be soon) and how many jobs were created and at what cost?

    So to be clear, jobs are more important than 20,000 deaths due to air pollution?

    20,000 premature deaths, a number they can't ever prove, only speculate

    Like the number of deaths from aborted fetuses?

    if you remember from the various threads on VN, I'm pretty ambivalent when it comes to abortion, so that's not really a tactic you can use with me

    the modeling which you speak so highly of is like the Congressional Budget Office, garbage in-garbage out

    Did I read somewhere that people are gonna "die" if this "jobs" bill doesn't pass?

    Are we looking for the lesser of the 2..

    Any evidence to back up the claims? Do we know how 'prematurely' the people are going to die. You would hope to see more evidence with a claim like that.

    Not attacking you, IP. I quickly skimmed the article (so I may have missed something), but it didn't seem to elaborate much.

    There is an equal amount of information concerning premature deaths as there is job creation from this, imo.

    In the article or in the bill?

    I mean "out there." They both make conclusions based on assumptions.
