We keep hearing that technology will save us when it comes to green energy, that as technology improves wind and solar will somehow magically overtake more traditional forms of energy production. This is a complete myth, building solar panels, windmills and batteries takes an enormous amount of energy, and create numerous extremely toxic and environmentally damaging by-products. Green energy is completely unsustainable economically, relying heavily on massive government subsidies to artificially prop it up and make it look good. Meanwhile, no one seems to be looking at the fact that the same speculative potential that technology offers to green the energy industry, can also be applied to fossil fuel energy, including clean coal, natural gas, and carbon capture technology to list a few being researched...not to mention the one method of energy creation with the most potential to solve our energy problems...nuclear.

There isn't an energy option currently available that isn't priced (or subsidized) somewhat on speculation...conventional or green.

In dissent on carbon pricing, a 'traditionalist' judge puts Ottawa in its place

He basically said that it is in the Provincial's interest

Supply and Demand applies to elastic and inelastic commodidities, as well. The curves have rather different shapes, though. Also, one of the rational responses to dramatic price increases in necessities such as water is Black Marketeering. If you make necessities inaccessible, people will find innovative pathways to access them, inside or outside of the law. [See:Heroin trade]
