Such headlines and breathless e-mails from Big Solar and Big Wind today!
Since, no, they do not accept an end to their special subsidies, of course they’re not really arguing that they are competitive now. They’re, well, just a few years around the corner.
As they have always been.
And always will be.
Of course, it’s tough to explain away problems like, even when they’re up, well, they don’t do a whole lot. Which, yes, does have something to do with their not being economic alternatives or even serious energy sources. Remember: wind, solar and coal fired electricity were all commercialized within ten years of each other. Two of them are just losers, is all. Who else would try calling coal yesterday’s technology, but they, why, they’re nascent. Of course you are, dear.
All these missives are are signs of escalating campaigns against the push to stop wasting your money on ‘new energy sources, of the future’, if invented so very long ago.
Those gravy trains must run on time!
