The Green Taliban likes to talk about “renewables” like they are some sort of holy grail. Unfortunately they aren’t:
Although renewables remain the power source of choice for greens, they require such massive subsidies that their role in meeting soaring electricity demand will remain incidental. Spain is only one country that has decided that it can no longer afford the subsidies that renewables require, and only Obamaâ€™s antipathy to fossil fuels, his war on climate change, and the political clout of some of his donors keep subsidies flowing to uneconomic solar and wind companies.
Renewables are as fraudulent as their insistence that humans are warming the planet.
