“The irony is that the heavily subsidised nature of renewables has rendered the back-up grids required to function at all times commercially unviable; no sane investor would risk his money in an unsubsidised conventional power plant that only operates when it is needed; the economics don’t stack up.”

And as if to prove the point that not all revolutions are bad, it also promises a world of much cheaper prices.
