Outside Interests Pushing Michigan Towards Unaffordable Energy (Guest: Jason Hayes)

March 20, 2018

Outside interests with funding from billionaire Tom Steyer are pushing a Michigan ballot initiative that forces the state to adopt a 30% renewable energy mandate by 2030.

Out of state radical environmental interest groups, led by billionaire climate alarmist Tom Steyer, are pushing a ballot initiative in Michigan forcing state residents to get 30% of their electric power from politically favored renewable sources by 2030. Jason Hayes describes the scheme, how a similar plan of 25% by 2025 failed in the past, why Michigan is not the best place for solar and wind power, and how much it will raise energy prices in the state.
