Wind sucking subsidies instead of turning turbines

I just came accros the following statement by the Carbon Sense :
The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Australian federal government and the opposition to abolish all renewable energy targets, certificates and subsidies.

The Chairman of Carbon Sense, Mr Viv Forbes, said that it was time for those who worship wind turbines to pay their full cost, and not force other electricity consumers and tax payers to pay for a costly, unreliable and obsolete method of generating electricity.

“Wind power has been around since Don Quixote and it belongs in an industrial museum not in a modern economy.

“For too much of the time, the wind just sucks subsidies when it should be turning turbines.

“The 20% renewable energy target is unachievable without perpetual government mandates and subsidies and should be abolished,” Mr Forbes said.

This makes perfect sense to me, and both political parties are to blame. If a consumer wishes to purchase wind power, then that's fine, but why should those who don't have to foot the bill? This is morally unconscionable, pure and simple.
