Subsidy Farming: Wind Power Could Never Make a Profit Without Massive Subsidies

Squandering other people’s money is what the wind and solar industries do best. Let’s face it, they wouldn’t exist without massive and endless subsidies.

Teenage girls in woolly hats weren’t the only ones screaming when Donald Trump took the presidency, the wind and solar industries were furious, too.
