Wind now competes with fossil fuels. Solar almost does.Why do I say this is stupid? It sounds awesomely sweet, doesn't it? A green dream come true.
Except it's only true if you neglect one niggling little fact: that wind and solar power are massively subsidized by government, while fossil fuels are massively penalized.
It's as if they're saying that Mercedes-Benz limousines cost no more than a Ford Focus, and forget to mention that the government (with your tax dollars!) is paying a $150,000 subsidy for each of those Mercedes-Benzs.
Why, it's almost as if they writers (in Fortune magazine, no less) think we're all stupid or something!
