Fred Published on Forbes.com on The Disaster of Germany’s Green Energy Policy and Lessons for the US

Young Voices Director Fred Roeder has been published on Forbes.com. In his opinion piece ‘What The U.S. Can Learn From Germany’s Green Energy Debacle’ Fred writes about how the move of German politicians to put the country’s entire energy supply on green energy has caused an abundance of energy and higher prices at the same time:

The German example shows how legislation produced higher energy prices even as energy abounded. And it created a situation in which excess energy actually produces higher costs for consumers. Perhaps the least fair part of the whole scheme is how these prices disproportionately impact low-income households, who are forced to subsidize green energy for richer families to support politicians’ green energy visions.
