Insane Cost of Ontario’s Wind Power Obsession Killing Thousands of Manufacturing Jobs Forever

The principles of economics are not hard, nor are they a mystery. Jobs require viable businesses, viable businesses require cheap and reliable electricity. Deprive businesses of cheap and reliable power and those businesses will very soon cease to exist.

Guilty: Subsidised Wind & Solar Drive Australia’s Rocketing Retail Power Prices

Among the dwindling band of deluded wind and sun worshippers, no two words are more prone to send them into apoplexy than ‘South Australia’.
