The richest and the most evil Americans are members of the banking, energy and medical industries. Ya got that peasants?
The knock on renewable energy is its high price compared with fossil fuels. But a new European Commission analysis finds onshore wind power is cheaper than coal and gas when the “external cost” of fossil fuels to health and the environment is calculated, according to leaked documents obtained by The Guardian.
The Guardian reported that when those external costs are included, onshore wind farms generate 1 megawatt-hour of electricity at a price of 105 euros, compared with 164 euros for gas, 233 euros for coal, and 133 euros for nuclear power.
The European Wind Energy Association said that by factoring in air quality, climate change, and adverse health effects of energy sources, the report shows that the price of coal is more expensive than the highest retail electricity price in the EU’s 28 countries.
“This report highlights the true cost of Europe’s dependence on fossil fuels,” Justin Wilkes, EWEA’s deputy chief executive, said in a statement. “Renewables are regularly denigrated for being too expensive and a drain on the taxpayer. Not only does the commission’s report show the alarming cost of coal, but it also presents onshore wind as both cheaper and more environmentally friendly.”
It's a given that America is no longer a democracy and has descended into a plutocratic kleptocracy. Run by the scum of the earth that makes ISIS look like humanitarians. This is why that despite the fact that renewable energy is cheaper than fossil fuels American corporate gangs will fight alternative energy such as wind, solar, hydroelectric and geothermal. Filth like the Koch brothers cannot own the wind, sun, waves, rivers and heat from mother earth. The Koch brothers are filthy fucking evil and they are part of the shadow government. They know that their coal kills and maims millions of Americans each year but they are mobbed up with the banksters who are mobbed up with the real big money and that is the American medical industrial complex which exists to exploit and create human suffering on a global scale.
Criminal traitors like Duke Energy can burn wood chips and switch grass in their coal fired generating plants at a lower cost than coal but they know that coal kills and maims and they know that 20% of the US GDP is the medical industry and that by 2020 it will be 25%
The dots are connected and if you deny this you are an enemy of America and you need to be treated as such!
