It’s time to make a green energy shift (Letters, Dec. 14)
Unlike Marilyn Sundeen, might I suggest it is time to face reality rather than “make a green energy shift?”
I’m not sure where the letter writer thinks money comes from, if not taxes on viable industries, like oil and gas, used to prop up fanciful green ventures from Nova Scotia to B.C.
I’m glad she did mention that word “subsidy” because that speaks volumes about taxpayer paid sinkholes like Solyndra in the U.S. and those bird and bat killing wind farms in Ontario. None, none of them are viable without subsidies.
And I would love to know where all those green jobs are in today’s economy, other than those paid to spin at internationally funded green foundations, the NDP and Green Party headquarters, and for now, the government in Ottawa.
