Green Sector costs more jobs than it creates-report by Verso Economics

               The Global Warming Policy Forum has publicised a report by Verso Economics which has found that 3.7jobs are lost for every green job created in the UK as a whole. The report said that the renewable industry in Scotland benefited from a massive annual £330million transfer in subsidies from the UK taxpayer. Richard Marsh research director of Verso Economics said the case for green jobs does not stack up. (reported from BBC News)
