Unchecked Global climate change will kill more birds than wind mills will. And the cost of dealing with rising sea waters will dwarf the cost of infrastructure re-investment.

Dude-The bottom line for ME in this:In a free market what works best will take over.Our government deciding winners and losers will most likely give us a loser.
I suspect your right,446 billion to fossil fuel corporations has insured some losers.

Sounds like all the folks on horses balking at a heavily subsidized Henry Ford.

Climate change is bad news for fly fishermen and western aquatic ecosystems. A report finds that trout habitat is expected to decline by 58% by 2080 due to warming rivers and reduced streamflow caused by climate change.

So is the possibility that "they want" sufficient reasoning to have them perpetuate an earth choking future? Oddly the Chinese Government is pursuing renewable green tech with alacrity. Perhaps they know something you don't.
And if we continue to pour our national treasury into the sand of the middle east endlessly pursuing a failed ideology the Chinese will leave US in the dust of 3rd world insignificance.

GE sees solar costing less than fossil power in 2017 (assuming we get there)
GE Sees Solar Cheaper Than Fossil Power in Five Years
By Brian Wingfield

Solar power may be cheaper than electricity generated by fossil fuels and nuclear reactors within three to five years because of innovations, said Mark M. Little, the global research director for General Electric Co. (GE)

“If we can get solar at 15 cents a kilowatt-hour or lower, which I’m hopeful that we will do, you’re going to have a lot of people that are going to want to have solar at home,” Little said yesterday in an interview in Bloomberg’s Washington office. The 2009 average U.S. retail rate per kilowatt-hour for electricity ranges from 6.1 cents in Wyoming to 18.1 cents in Connecticut, according to Energy Information Administration data released in April.

GE, based in Fairfield, Connecticut, announced in April that it had boosted the efficiency of thin-film solar panels to a record 12.8 percent. Improving efficiency, or the amount of sunlight converted to electricity, would help reduce the costs without relying on subsidies.

want some documented murdered birds Gary,,
here ya go:

Ron,

Thanks for the link. But as indicated in that article. steps can and are being taken that will reduce those numbers.

And I'd much rather see windmills around my climbing area than that dark brown ring in the air that used to en circle Los Angeles.

In the early '80s if you couldn't hike in the San Gabriels without choking on it. Seriously, you'd draw a deep breath and start coughing.

That ring is gone now. And it's not the result of market forces, it was the evil gubmint that gave us air we can actually breathe.
