Al Gore’s Climate Protection Action fund has two new TV spots that are going to be airing shortly for TV viewers in Indiana and Maine. Here is Indiana’s ad:
Frankly, I don’t believe climate legislation in any form is going to boost Indiana’s economy or anyone else’s for that matter. It’s just good stuff that probably needs to be done anyway, but for anyone to claim it’ll give us an extra 10,000 jobs or otherwise boost our economy just doesn’t seem plausible. At least in Indiana, where a good number of folks work for otherwise “dirty” industries that would be negatively impacted. It’s more or less just going to shift jobs from one part of the state to the other.
