Cash for renewable clunkers

The Wall Street Journal reports how Wall Street wind investors get a 30% cash rebate on the building of renewable energy facilities in addition to accelerated depreciation deductions — with no government spending cap on the program.

A spokesman for Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said:

“We are concerned that this may evolve into a cash-for-clunkers version 2.0.”

  1. What can be wrong with the government funneling profits for lower capacity/higher cost energy infrastructure to handpicked corporations before they provide the first watt?

    Its just the greens version of “the rich get richer”. They get profits first, we pick up the costs second. They make money today, we pay higher costs forever.

    Oh what? You actually believed the green movement was about helping the environment? Hahahahaha!
