The Dark Side of Green

CFACT barnstormed CPAC, The Conservative Political Action Conference, this weekend with a series of activities that culminated in a light saber duel between “Green Energy” Darth Vader and the “Reliable Energy” Jedi! “We thought this would get the point across to the crowd pretty easily: That so-called ‘green’ energy that needs subsidies is the bad […]
