James Conca somehow got a platform at Forbes to publish a collection of anti-renewable pro-nuclear falsehoods with the title “Germany – Insane or Just Plain Stupid?”. Thanks to this Tweet by Fossil Nuke Rod Adams for the link.
He needed a comment to point out that the Green Party is actually not in the government coalition. At least he corrected that falsehood.
But he still insists that “The average household in Germany will be paying almost double for energy next year compared to last year” and that “Electricity costs are going up more rapidly than expected because Germany failed to integrate this EEG plan into the larger infrastructure development needed to implement it.”
Meanwhile, in reality, electricity costs for industry are down in Germany in 2011. And the idea that electricity costs for households might double has just about the same comedic value as that of the Green Party being in the government coalition.
James Conca has no idea what he’s talking about.
