So, we’re subsidising the hell out of the installation of solar panels in order to stop Gaia from boiling.
Then we impose a tax on cheap solar panels that would stop Gaia from boiling.
The UK could lose billions of pounds and thousands of jobs in the solar industry if the EU imposes tariffs on cheap imported panels from China, a report has claimed.
The European commission is investigating if solar panels coming into Europe from China are being sold below market value – known as “dumping” – and benefiting from unfair Chinese government subsidies.
Look, if the Chinese taxpayer is being ripped off to make solar panels cheaper for Europeans then the correct response is to say, as a European, “Ta, ta v. muchly, send me some more”.
We’re ruled by loons: imports are the benefit from trade and the cheaper they are the better.
