Stop AGW – Try For 55% Unemployment Like Spain

Study: Global Warming Can Be Slowed By Working Less

“Want to reduce the effects of global warming? Stop working so hard. Working fewer hours might help slow global warming, according to a new study released Monday by the Center for Economic Policy and Research.

A worldwide switch to a “more European” work schedule, which includes working fewer hours and more vacation time, could prevent as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, according to the analysis, which used a 2012 study that found shorter work hours could be associated with lower carbon emissions.

The Center for Economic Policy and Research is a liberal think tank based in Washington.”

A “more European” work schedule???

Like Spain?

Spain unemployment rate hit a record: youth rate at 55%

Spain’s unemployment rate has hit a modern day record, and joblessness among young people has topped 55%.

Official data showed that the jobless rate in the last three months of 2012 rose 1% to 26%, or 5.97 million people.

The figure, the highest since the mid-1970s, follows Spain’s prolonged recession and deep spending cuts.Spain unemployment rate hit a record: youth rate at 55%
