Soak the Poor Maryland's Greens Following In Germany's Footsteps
Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley has put in place green policies that have drastically raised energy prices across the state—especially for low-income residents. We’ve seen this before. In European country after European country governments pushed through solar and wind subsidies while ignoring shale resources. In many cases, those governments have realized the failures of that approach, and are backpedaling in the face of widespread popular opposition to high energy prices. Maryland should learn from the European experience, and stop trying to prop up nascent technologies before it does even more harm to its citizens.
