That’s where this green obsession leads. It promotes a policy on its moral virtues, not on its real-life impact.
It replaces the mundane requirements of affordability and reliability of power generation with the vague promise that we’re all participating in some planet-saving enterprise if our toasters run on our neighbour’s highly-subsidized solar panels.
Green is the easiest virtue. All it takes in most cases for politicians is simply to say the word often enough and whatever they propose — for a time — gets a pass.
Who would question McGuinty against those “selfish” landowners. Wasn’t Dalton moving towards a greener world?
Enough then. No studies required.
