Former student, Gerry Nicholls, is very witty. I've enjoyed reading things he writes for years. Here's a brilliant example. The conclusion:
Sure, I get the concept in theory: government-subsidized companies will invent something amazingly innovative and environmentally friendly, such as machines that run on the warmth generated by Trudeau’s “Sunny ways”.
Yet, the sad truth of economics is that companies which rely on government handouts are usually only good at innovating one thing: new ways to get government hand outs. [emphasis added]
So you see, for all our sakes we better hope the climate change alarmists are wrong or else we’ve had it.
It’s not that I’m not a “climate change denier” so much as I’m a “government competence denier.”
Too bad Gerry hasn't learned that the correct spelling is "gubmnt".
