We must note their intent, not the outcome.

Solar panels: Thousands of customers complain

Quote:
Thousands of people who bought solar panels have complained to a financial watchdog that they are not bringing them the returns they were promised.

Many people took out loans to pay for panels on the promise they would save thousands of pounds in electricity costs and make money generating power.

They say they have not had the expected savings, and the Financial Services Ombudsman has had 2,000 complaints.

Barclays Bank has put aside £38m to deal with potential claims.

I have zero compassion for idiots who rush out to buy a pig in a poke.

Marianne Williamson On Nuclear Energy: Don’t Use ‘Hard Data,’ Think ‘With Your Hearts’

Quote:
Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson came out against using nuclear energy, which experts say should be used to combat climate change, on Thursday during a climate change town hall on MSNBC, urging students to not use "hard data" when thinking about nuclear energy.

Actually looked into this. In Alberta about all you can do is cancel the actual cost of electricity. Buy back goes no higher. Given the gouge fees you will still pay at least half of what you do now.


Overall a very bad deal.

Let's just consider that headline a rhetorical question. It's not like they don't do it already (climate change, gun control, among others)...

“Fossil fuels subsidies” as described in the media for the most part don’t exist – are governments really willing to build policy on a fictitious concept?

Quote:
Pay attention everyone, this is important: people proposing to govern our mighty country are proposing to pay for part of it by reducing “traffic congestion costs imposed by one driver on other vehicle occupants” or by squeezing money out of someone for “travel delays” that are “monetized using evidence about the relationship between wages and how people value travel time.” Believe it or not, that is one imbecility being flouted in the media as a “fossil fuel subsidy”.

CubaMark turned tail and ran away from the topic the last time he has his ass handed to him on that one. Another great victory for socialism!

Trump admin announces compromise on ethanol after lack of government-mandated demand hurts industry

Quote:
After a drop in government mandates led to a lag in market demand for corn and corn-based car fuel, the Trump administration announced a deal Friday to prop the industry back up.

An EPA news release sent out Friday stated that the administration has worked out an arrangement regarding the Renewable Fuel Standard — also called the ethanol mandate — meant to help support plant-based fuel production.

EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler called the announced arrangement “the latest in a series of steps we have taken to expand domestic energy production and improve the RFS program that will result in sustained biofuel production to help American farmers.”

Where's CM, praising this use of government power to create a renewable mandate?
