Perpetual Infants: $100 Billion in Taxpayer Subsidies and US Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Still Want More

Three decades ago, wind and solar were treated as industrial ‘infants’, deserving of subsidies and support, on the premise that they’d be on their feet, in no time. Well, after 30 years and plenty of talk about being ‘competitive’ with coal, gas and nuclear, they’re still being treated like untamable toddlers. And, just like bawling […]

Lone Star Losers: Wind Power Collapses During Texan Heatwave & Power Prices Rocket

No matter where they ply their […]

In a case of déjà vu all over again, the Hoosier state, Indiana wants to follow SA’s idiotic example. Those behind it have no hesitation in turning […]
