VIDEO: Anti-Coal Protest Fails Quite Ironically When Solar Battery Can’t Fill Up Smokestack-Shaped Balloon

Militant “greenies” who believe coal and other fossil fuels have no place in the world just got a reality check when their solar and wind powered balloon deflated after the solar battery failed to maintain the balloon’s inflation. The group even admits that they’d usually plug the fan into a gas-powered generator.

The MacIver Institute reported: Demonstrators gathered outside the Public Service Commission to protest against a requested rate structure change by the local utility company, Madison Gas and Electric (MG&E). During the protest, they decried the use of “dirty coal” and called for more renewable energy. To make their point, they had a blow-up coal power plant that was running on a fan powered by wind and solar charged batteries. Before the protest was over, however, the batteries died and their solar panel could not produce enough energy to keep the power plant standing upright.

Now be honest, did you laugh? The hypocrisy of these people is alarming and amusing at the same time. Unfortunately, however, these people are very loud, and a small group of people shouting can influence policy creation.
