The Texas town that Al Gore praised as a model for green energy has now lost millions of tax dollars that were wasted on the failed green energy programs Gore thought were so great.
Despite having the blessings of Gore, the high priest of the Globaloney religion, the town of Georgetown, Texas, has now been forced to admit that it has lost a whopping seven MILLION dollars in tax money misspent on the greenism.
Amusingly, now the same town “leaders” who took plaudits for supposedly leading the way into a green future are looking for ways to get out of their green promises and contracts.
According to Daily Caller:
“It’s costing them big time,” vice president of research at the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), Bill Peacock, told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. “This doesn’t appear to be the first time they’ve lost money, just the first time it was big enough to have to go public with it.”
The Texas city was praised in Minister Gore’s 2017 follow up film, An Inconvenient Sequel:
“I think Georgetown is already a trailblazer,” Gore said during his 2016 visit to learn about Georgetown’s plan to get 100 percent of their energy from wind and solar power.
“And one thing that Georgetown demonstrates to other places that are just beginning to think about it is that the power supply is not only more affordable the cost is predictable for at least 25 years into the future and really beyond that,” Gore said.
Gore appeared in a video with the town fathers — including Mayor Dale Ross — to slap backs and praise the politicians for their wonderful foray into greenism.
Now, the “dollars and sense” decision these officials said they were making has backfired BIGLY and costing the town millions.
