Renewable energy policies grossly immoral: former UK Minister of Finance

Ontario's wind power program has never undergone a cost-benefit analysis, and has contributed significantly to increasing electricity bills.

Worth a read is an opinion piece in today’s Financial Post by Nigel Lawson. Excerpt:

what moves me most is that the policies invoked in its name are grossly immoral. We have, in the UK, devised the most blatant transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich – and I am slightly surprised that it is so strongly supported by those who consider themselves to be the tribunes of the people and politically on the Left. I refer to our system of heavily subsidizing wealthy landlords to have wind farms on their land, so that the poor can be supplied with one of the most expensive forms of electricity known to man.

The world cries out for justice.
