Why Corrupt Governments LOVE Wind and Solar Farm Ponzi Schemes

Western economies have been devastated by overspending, under-taxation, growing energy costs and competition from cheap non-union producers (notably China).
"We" don't make anything anymore.
The Liberal Governed Province of Ontario, from whence I write, is about as corrupt as a "democratic" government can get. Prior to the last election, they wasted $1 Billion to relocate 2 gas plants because there was a risk of losing the ridings. Then they hired an outsider to delete all the emails between top officials.  This, a few years after their Minister of Energy, without authorization, signed a $9 Billion contract with Samsung to build windfarms forever in Ontario.
Ontario can't afford to make autoparts anymore. Energy costs and union wages are too expensive. Food processing is closing down and moving because it isn't feasible to process our own tomatoes here.
So what do the "Lieberals" do? The same as other bankrupt governments.
They cling to the life raft of  "renewables" which not only saves the planet, but also on the surface generates jobs. But, of course, they don't generate jobs because the energy it produces is too expensive - it is not, and never will be, a viable product.
The job "creation" is in fact a transfer of wealth - from taxes of people who pay taxes, to people employed in making "renewables". It's very similar to hiring one guy to dig a hole, and then hire another guy to fill it in. Both of them working long enough that when their jobs are over, they can draw unemployment insurance, which is a transfer of funds from ALL Canadian taxpayers.
Now, with their successfully fooling Ontario residents with this scheme, they can move on to "carbon taxes". Which sucks money out of everyone's pocket, so the Liberals can give it to their friends.
And as evidenced by the last election, which saw the Liberals give huge wage increases to teachers and other union workers, there are enough people on the government dole and in government jobs, to win the election.
Time for the torches and pitchforks.

As always in these matters "follow the money trail" is an important guideline. For Ont wind development the trail includes Ont and Canada Liberal President Mike Crawley, former premier David Peterson, plus other well connected Liberals.

Of course, the previous Minister went on a junket to China, stopped over in Seoul, signed the deal with Samsung, arrived back walked in the caucus room grandly announced signing the deal and his boss said, "You did what!" and fired him. About the only smart thing McGuinty ever did.

oldwhiteguy says........ it is long past time for torches and pitchforks. arrests, jail and worse if the problem is not solved soon. the province is bankrupt and the idiots who were elected by other idiots, do not have a clue as to what should be done. health care, education and interest eat up 80% of Ontario revenue. debt is increasing by 6o million dollars a day and that does not include the 10 billion spent on interest. yes it is time for much more than torches and pitchforks.
