What,you didn't hear?<quoted text>INVESTMENT in renewable or no fossil fuel energy is paramount for this country to reduce her reliance on foreign oil. Oil is a finite resource. We've got to keep investing in research for alternative sources where the science shows real promise. The Chinese certainly are moving in that direction. Should we quit and sit on it because it costs money?
Well, the reality is that we are being outcompeted for oil by China and India, and we have to find alternative solutions. Clean coal technology is a valuable investment:

Although China dominates in the race to be the leading global manufacturer of clean renewable energy, they are not necessarily doing the most for the environment. China, consistently pushing the clean energy market towards an economic future, was expected to be a leading developing country in negotiations at Rio+20. As they lap the United States and world economies in this race by training a skilled clean energy workforce and providing steep subsidies, more and more manufacturing companies are heading overseas. The US simply cannot compete. If the US does not demonstrate a greater sense of urgency to contrive alternative clean energy policies coupled with investment initiatives, it will fall further behind economically.
Oblamer invested plenty of tax payer dollars in renewable energy.
Babcock & Brown
A123 Systems,just a partial list.
Do you know what they have in common?
To the tune of 90 billion.
Can Oblamer pick em or what?
How much more should we allow this buffoon to invest?
Why not a bazillion?
4 wasted years.
