Myth 1: Everyone understands what a “green job: is.
Fact 1: No standard definition of a “green job” is set.
Myth 3: Green jobs forecasts are reliable.
Fact 3: The green jobs studies estimates using poor economic models based on uncertain assumptions.
Myth 5: The world economy can be remade by reducing trade and relying on local production and reduced consumption without dramatically decreasing out standard of living.
