A recent report showed that despite millions of dollars in government investment in eco-friendly businesses and technology, almost no "green jobs" are being produced in the Bay Area. What happened?

• Solar power turned out to be racist

• It was the only time in history a public policy fad didn't deliver promised results

• All the money was spent raising awareness
