Is the wind power industry successful? Is it sustainable? Safe? I don't know enough about it. If it is safe, sustainable and effective then it can be subsidized. 8 years ago from a Libertarian in Laguna Hills, CA
No, the federal government should stop subsidizing a successful technology. 8 years ago from a Green in Pasadena, CA
Yes, provided that a solution is found for the impact to local fauna (windmills kill a lot of birds, particularly eagles). 9 years ago from a Green in Ramona, CA
Alternative energy is not a certain benefit for the U.S. Our power grids still require massive updates before they will be capable of storing the massive amounts of additional energy created by alternative sources.
I do believe that all alternative sources should be incentivized, but not before appropriate and necessary infrastructure has been developed. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Modesto, CA
No, deregulate and let the free market decide. 9 years ago from a Republican in San Diego, CA
No, the government should internalize all the externalities of all energy sources (e.g. introduce a carbon tax) and let the market decide. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Piedmont, CA
Yes, Subsidies for solar and other sustainable energies as long as they themselves are minimally detrimental to wildlife. 9 years ago from a Democrat in Paso Robles, CA
No, the federal government should only subsidize/credit industries for limited durations, in cases where the financial boost will allow the industry to develop an edge over foreign competition and where the financial benefits will remain inside the US. 9 years ago from a Green in San Francisco, CA
No, but then it should stop subsidizing oil and gas, ethanol, and everything else. Let the market figure this one out, and tax carbon pollution as a more meaningful driver. 9 years ago from a Green in Mount Hermon, CA
The wind power industry is both an important alternative to coal and natural gas and the future of our economy based on the creation of jobs that it will bring. 9 years ago from a Democrat in California City, CA
