12. Environment and jobs are not not opposites.

That's a wrong and dangerous historical way of thinking.

Create millions of jobs instantly by hiring people to build and install wind, solar and geothermal power. Hire people to modernize the electric grid, convert to electric vehicles, and insulate buildings.

Unfortunately the dirty energy companies have spent billions advertising on TV channels like CNN and MSNBC to get liberals to believe that if we want jobs, we have to put climate change on hold.

It's false choice. Addressing climate change can create jobs, but we have to be willing to take the common sense steps.
