Can This Country Afford To Continue Green Tech Subsidies?
The $64,000 question (I know, I'm dating myself) is: can we afford to continue green tech subsidies? Europe, especially Spain, could not, so why do we think we are any different? Sure, green jobs are nice. But, in the present economy, they cannot sustain themselves. And it is not the government's job to subsidize them or to force us taxpayers to pay for them. If one or more companies that don't receive government subsidies want to sponsor green tech, that's fine. When/if the technology is ready and can sustain itself, the sponsor companies will make a lot of money. There is a name for what I propose: capitalism.
But that's just my opinion.
