‘Green’ Energy Obsession Loses Its Glitter: Subsidised Wind & Solar Scam Unmasked

Every good cult needs a mantra. For the anti-progress crowd, it’s the line that ‘green’ is good. However, in the way that Humpty Dumpy could make words mean anything he chose them to mean, ‘green’ has taken on a meaning all of its own.

Neither proposition stands a moment’s scrutiny. The true cost of energy storage using lithium-ion batteries is phenomenal, such that it will never match the scale needed […]
