To the Editor:
On April 23, 2020, a bipartisan group of six senators wrote a letter to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin asking him to extend the “safe harbor” deadline for wind and solar projects because of COVID-19. This extension would give the renewable energy companies more time to collect even more tax credits from the taxpayer. Among the six senators were Chuck Grassley and John Thune, both fierce proponents of the tax credits for wind and solar. In the past both have pledged their support to phase out these credits. But it never happens.
Thune and Grassley are among the top recipients of campaign contributions from wind and solar. They are in bed with big business and other politicians using the virus as an excuse to fill their own pockets.
In your spare time watch “Planet of the Humans” on YouTube, directed by liberal Michael Moore. It exposes the renewable energy scam as a cash cow for corporations and politicians with zero net effect on climate change.
