Don’t be fooled by all that talk of ‘Green Energy’

In the rural village of Greene, R.I., residents have been fighting what seems like endless political town battles in opposition to Green Energy projects.

He clearly has no regard for the environmental destruction being wrought by both onshore and offshore wind turbine mega-farms. Wind farm operators are heavily subsidised by taxpayers’ money to generate electricity at inflated prices. They are also paid for keeping their turbines idle when their contribution to the grid is not required and when the wind does not . . .

A release issued by the group Thursday says “Ontario’s . . .
