Renewable Power – The Louder They Scream, The More Money We’ve Wasted

The problem with governments subsidising anything – like green power – is that it creates a vast network of dependents who scream if the taxpayers’ teat is removed:

The New South Wales State government’s decision to withdraw support from clean energy schemes was criticised yesterday as a retrograde step that would threaten billions of investment dollars.

The State’s Energy Minister, Chris Hartcher, has said the government would not be supporting green schemes that require a subsidy and is calling for the closure of the federal government’s renewable energy target.

The carpetbaggers must be defied. They’ve taken enough cash already, and should count themselves lucky.

Next question: what will we do with those huge, useless wind farms? Keep them as monuments to our stupidity during the Great Global Warming Scare?
