  •  What "rising unemployment"? (1+ / 0-)

    Are you using different stats than everyone else?

    ...if the news concentrates on the easier reporting of falling stock markets, rising unemployment...
    There was a minor uptick last month (due, arguably, to more people looking for work because the economy is getting better,) but it's still below 8%.

    •  Increases in employment need to be about (1+ / 0-)

      130,000 per month to keep up with population growth.  So, any month employment does not increase by more than this, the number of unemployed people increases.

      In recent months, employment increases have been less than this.

    •  most economic prognosticators (0+ / 0-)

      indicate a potential recession and 2 million job losses if the federal government sequester occurs.  The lack of federal spending especially in across the board cuts will have a negative impact on growth.  And probably kill people cut off from medicaid, which is ultimately more important, but as far as media distractions,   that never gets reported, but economic bad news is played to the hilt.

      •  So you mean "projected rising unemployment if (0+ / 0-)

        the sequester happens," not "rising unemployment".

        •  semantics police are we now (0+ / 0-)

          I think in the context of my entire, not formal dissertation, but blog comment,  it was clear that my point was that if the tax cuts/sequester happens it will overwhelm the news, noise that would block any attempts to build a message about climate change.
