Why do we need public money for this? The renewable folks never tire of telling everyone that they produce the cheapest energy now. If this is the case everyone should run for renewables and all others should die away. Looks like this is not the case. Can it be that the renewable folks are plain lying. If they are not lying – all subsidies should be cut. If they are lying, they should go to jail for fraud.
It is not the smoothest of roads, but politicians globally are realising that their electorates are trending towards greater environmental consciousness.
