Who would have thought that wind power would be the new favorite money-maker of the Mafia? Not me. But, it seems that they’ve taken over the wind industry in Italy and every time someone writes a check for their electric bill they’re enriching the Godfather.
Per this article in the Telegraph titled “Mafia cash in on lucrative EU wind farm handouts – especially in Sicily” they’ve made a move that Don Corleone would be proud of.
But for all their promises of a clean, green future, Italy‘s wind farms have now acquired a somewhat dirtier whiff – as the latest industry to be infiltrated by the country’s mobsters.
Dat’s right schweetheart da mob is in.
Attracted by the prospect of generous grants designed to boost the use of alternative energies, the so-called “eco Mafia” has begun fraudulently creaming off millions of euros from both the Italian government and the European Union.
So, it seems all those “generous grants” which originate from Italian’s hard-earned tax dollars are ending up in the Don’s Swiss bank account.
More CO2 Insanity that you can read about from the source.
