1.2 million real jobs lost? All in a good days work for ‘Green Inc.’ et al who detest capitalism and all its trappings…. jobs and prosperity.
Most, gifted with the slightest grip on the basics of economics, pick up on the fact that producers of widgets (and the like) are driven by the prospect of profits (a motive lost on Labor/Green apparatchiks), which, in turn depend upon input costs.
For widget makers, butchers, bakers and the like, drive up input costs and, all things equal, their profits will fall; and their ability to invest in their business and employ people will drop off, too.

He gives no evidence for this, but it makes sense given the fact that the jet stream has been much further south than “usual” recently.
As the Met Office told us, Alex is reckoned to be the first January hurricane since 1955. Prior to that there was one in 1938, which just happens to the same year that the Great New England Hurricane, or Long Island Express…
