Realistic Environmentalism

Blog, Energy, Peter McCaffrey

Check out this excellent article from The Globe And Mail, on realistic environmentalism:

“The government is the worst shareholder in the world,” says Mr. Dwyer, whose business is subsidy-free, a rare status for green industry in Canada.

Environmental initiatives will never succeed so long as they depend on government subsidies, he believes. So when he set out to start a business, he went in search of a renewable fuel source that wouldn’t require government subsidies, and a technology that works.

The environmentalists who will change the world are not the ones who believe that business is a dirty word and capitalism is evil. They’re the ones who understand how things actually work.
