I was doing some more reading this evening, and ran across this very interesting article:
Renewable energy now cheaper than new fossil
fuels in Australia
Sydney, 7 February 2013 – Unsubsidised renewable energy is now cheaper than electricity from new-build coal- and gas-fired power stations in
Australia, according to new analysis from research firm Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
“The perception that fossil fuels are cheap and renewables are expensive is now out of date”, said Michael Liebreich, chief executive of
Bloomberg New Energy Finance. “The fact that wind power is now cheaper than coal and gas in a country with some of the world’s best fossil fuel
resources shows that clean energy is a game changer which promises to turn the economics of power systems on its head,” he said.
How 'bout that? While the FOX factory of propaganda is swearing to their insulated viewers that renewable energy is totally impossible without
massive government subsidies and economic suicide, yet another real world example is marching right along proving them completely
full of it.
I suspect, as these kind of precedents get set more and more often in the near future, FOX will just ramp up the rhetoric and propaganda against them
in step, and thus so will their drone army.
If only they would turn down the hyperbolic volume on their remotes for a second - they might hear that distinct other sound: the death-knell of the
fossil fuel oligarchy.
