Of course not when those facts undermine your narrative to the point of absurdity.


That was a brilliant take on Smurf's point. We are all very glad you made it.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

I'll be able to answer that question when HG answers my question. There's no point in trying to compare the costs of renewable energy prices in the future. That, to me, is what this debate is all about.


Hobbyguy's question, challenge was posed a "long" time before yours so I believe it would be appropriate for you to answer first instead of deflecting, the no sides only strategy. Please give us the answer you say you have.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

Sorry, I don't have a crystal ball that can tell me what the rates for renewable energy will cost in the future. I know what it costs now in various other jurisdictions, since that info is readily available, but nobody, not even HG can say what it's going to cost in B.C. a decade from now. Some so-called experts suggest that costs of alternative sources of energy will continue to decrease for several more years and then level off, whereas BC Hydro cannot tell us what their rates will be in the future. We know we're going to be paying more, but how much more?
