"According to Connie Hedegaard, the European Union’s commissioner for climate action, 'People should believe that [wind power] is very, very cheap.' In fact, this is a highly problematic claim. While wind energy is cheaper than other, more ineffective renewables, such as solar, tidal, and ethanol, it is nowhere near competitive. If it were, we wouldn’t have to keep spending significant sums to subsidize it."

And on the same subject:
"Compared to current rates, it's estimated that Cape Wind power -- at 18.7 cents per kilowatt-hour, rising 3.5 percent annually -- will cost about $2 billion more than conventional power under the National Grid contract."
And you know last summer when the climate change wackos were screaming that the drought in the midwest was caused by, of course, climate change. Well, no, it wasn't:
(The Guardian, perhaps the most left-wing major Brit paper)
So, we have two sources saying what any rational person already knows: green energy is expensive as ****. And we have yet another climate change claim shot down.
But don't worry, greeny will be here soon spouting nonsense, claiming the sources aren't to his liking, etc. You see, he is a true believer, and will not in any circumstance accept any argument or facts to the contrary. And he wants all of us to pay out the *** for energy.
