Requiem For the Electric Car: Titanic Subsidies, Miniscule Sales

It’s one of the biggest forced transfers of wealth from middle-income taxpayers to rich people ever conceived.

Alberta Oil Companies Hemorrhage Cash After NDP Tax Hike

President Obama is not alone in wielding governmental power to clamp down on carbon-emitting energy. While he weaponizes the Environmental Protection Agency to take on coal-powered energy, potentially shutting down hundreds of coal-fired power plants, Alberta’s new socialist NDP government is pushing ostensibly environmentally-minded policies against oil on shared premises of combating “climate change.”
