COSTS OF WIND AND SOLAR ENERGY ARE SKYROCKETING

Advocates of wind and solar energy have argued that the cost of those energy sources would decline over time as they are more widely adopted. That never made any sense, and it has not proved true. In fact, the cost of both wind and solar energy is destined to continue rising sharply as the massive quantities of materials they require become more expensive as a result of increasing demand, driven by ill-advised (the politest adjective I can think of) government mandates and subsidies.


In fact, the cost of electricity generated by wind and solar is already skyrocketing. My colleague Isaac Orr reproduced this chart at American Experiment. It shows the average cost of wind and solar energy as contracted for in Power Purchase Agreements with utilities from 2019 through early 2022. It should be noted that these are subsidized prices, not the full cost if you include the portion that is paid by taxpayers:Image

The average cost of electricity generated by wind turbines has almost doubled in three years, and yet governments continue their irrational policies that can only drive the cost of power higher. The one thing that could make the situation catastrophically worse is if governments imposed drastic new demand on the electric power grid by making us all drive electric vehicles. But no, they could never be that stupid. Could they?

As Eric A commented:

The German National Socialist Workers' Party sent the brownshirts into the streets to provoke fights and disrupt law and order, then turned around and preached that all-powerful government was the only solution to the lack of law and order.

Similarly, the Green New Deal is not intended to provide an actually working energy system, in the sense of usable energy the average family can afford. If it causes blackouts and industrial/employment disruptions these will be cited as reasons why the government needs even more authority to take over energy production.

Of course you know the idiotic excuse that the Biden brain-dead morons will use, which is the same **** they cried when the cost of health care insurance skyrocketed AFTER Obamacare was implemented, and NO ONE save the $2500 a year that the lying scumbag Obama promised!

"Well sure, the cost of energy has gone up, but it would have gone up much further and faster if we DIDN'T add all that great wind and solar power!"

Here, stupid.  Next time, educate your ignorant self before proving to everyone what a gullible moron you are to believe only what CNN tells you!:
Obamacare Has Doubled the Cost of Individual Health Insurance
Heritage Foundation March 21, 2021
Eleven years after the passage of Obamacare, Americans buying health insurance under the law are still worse off financially than before the health law was enacted.Obamacare more than doubled health insurance costs for workers and families, with the national average premium increasing by 129 percent from 2013 to 2019.
https://www.heritage.org/health-care-re ... -insurance
 
11 Years Of ACA/ObamaCare, 11 Years Of Rising Costs
Forbes by Josh Archambault

Eleven years of ObamaCare have done little to combat the ever-increasing cost of health care insurance for the American middle class. D.C.’s so-called solution is the “American Rescue Plan” that transfers even more money out of taxpayers’ wallets and to insurance companies.
Washington has just written a blank check to the biggest players in health care for at least two years and these subsidies just cover up problems that will only get worse. The twisted logic of the bill even grants more assistance to higher-income enrollees, compared to those with lower incomes.

ObamaCare premium hikes are making Democrats sick
The Hill BY MERRILL MATTHEWS 06/07/22

As The Hill’s Peter Sullivan explains: “The American Rescue Plan signed by President Biden last year temporarily increased financial assistance under ObamaCare, but that increase is set to expire at the end of this year, causing an increase in [2023] premiums for enrollees in the health law unless Congress acts.

So, on top of all the inflation pain consumers are already experiencing with food, rent, medicine and especially gasoline, several million Americans will receive a notice that their ObamaCare premiums are going up significantly. And while taxpayers will still be subsidizing those premiums, the subsidies won’t be as generous as they have been.
Still don't believe it, ****?

There are several reasons for rising healthcare costs. Not that I would expect you to blame anyone or anything but Trump. 

Americans are unhealthier. The population has increased significantly since 1970. More advanced technology, which means higher expense. Etc...


Go on now, let's hear how Trump is at fault for all of it.

All you've shown is simply how dumb you truly are!  The fact is that from April 23 through July 1, 2020, the number of uninsured increased by more than 2.7 million people BECAUSE SO MANY LOST THEIR JOBS (and their employer healthcare) AND WERE FORCED TO PICK UP OBAMACARE TO MAINTAIN COVERAGE!
Study shows how health insurance coverage changed during the COVID-19 pandemic
 Image by Emily Henderson, B.Sc. Sep 9 2021

"Some expected many more people would have lost their insurance coverage given the enormous decline in employment," she said. "However, our study found that, while employer-sponsored insurance did indeed decline during the COVID-19 pandemic, many people enrolled in coverage from other sources, primarily government programs."
So, you don't like including the figures from Covid, Eggplant?
Fine!  Explain the huge premium cost increases for the 3 years prior to Covid, from 2017-2019:
Did Obamacare Make Premiums Go Up?
By DANIEL KURT  June 12, 2021

More Recent Effects on PremiumsIn 2018 and 2019, the ACA's marketplaces experienced considerable turmoil that resulted in huge swings in premiums. In October 2017, the administration stopped directly reimbursing insurers for cost-sharing reductions. The ACA required marketplace insurers to reduce out-of-pocket costs for people with incomes below 250% of the federal poverty level, so insurers increased their premiums (typically silver marketplace premiums ) to cover the additional cost. There were also concerns about the marketplaces’ stability and long-term viability, and these fears were reflected in the 2018 premiums. In 2018, the lowest silver marketplace premium offered in each rating region increased sharply by 29.7% on average. Twenty-eight states increased their average lowest silver premium by more than 29%.
So what about going forward now that Covid is over?  Keep dreaming if you're still dumb enough to think we're done with those huge increases:
ObamaCare premium hikes are making Democrats sick
BY MERRILL MATTHEWS - 06/07/22

The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that without additional American Rescue Plan subsidies, the 14.5 million people in the ACA Marketplace – 13 million of whom receive taxpayer-supplied subsidies – will see an average 53 percent increase in their 2023 premiums.
Can't help but admire your dauntless dedication to being such a gullible moron and mindless pawn of the lying scum on CNN though!
Must come easy for you, huh?
