While we are on the subject of energy idiocy, Biden said Friday that coal and oil are more expensive than windmills and solar panels (sic). No, actually, reliance on wind and solar power is highly correlated with higher prices for energy and electric power. We know this from the experience of other countries that have tried the “green” route to clean energy. It has failed everywhere. Germany tried wind and solar and it was such a colossal flop that you can see from the chart that the Germans were soon operating with the highest energy costs in the industrialized world. Germany is one step ahead of the U.S. They’ve learned the lesson and are turning back to nuclear and natural gas, while we head over the “green energy” cliff.
