No, but there should also be an end to tax incentives and subsidies across the energy sector, including oil and gas, coal, nuclear, and hydro. Research and development grants should be available and encouraged, but stop subsidies to existing technology. 6 years ago from a Green in Portland, OR
For a workers' party. For a workers' government. Expropriate the entire power industry. 6 years ago from a Green in Saint Petersburg, FL
Even though I am for alternative energy sources, wind power needs to take in consideration how it affects wild life, such as eagles and other large birds. This should be a consideration of all alternative energy sources whether it is using the wind,... 6 years ago from a Green in Lawrence, KS
No, the federal government should stop subsidizing a successful technology. 6 years ago from a Green in Pasadena, CA
Yes, only if that industry can replace fossil fuel at the time it is receiving tax credits &/or subsidies. 6 years ago from a Green in Cicero, NY
Yes, Wind energy, as all renewable / non-traditional energy sources should be subsidized to encourage research and development. Traditional fossil fuel sources are finite and additional energy sources will need to come on-stream to continue economic and... 6 years ago from a Green in Goshen, AR
Wind and Nuclear power I believe are the most efficient forms of energy. Coal and oil power are inefficient and will die as industries within a short while, but efforts should be taken to prepare for that eventuality, like investing in other forms of... 6 years ago from a Green in Greensboro, NC
Yes, provided that a solution is found for the impact to local fauna (windmills kill a lot of birds, particularly eagles). 6 years ago from a Green in Ramona, CA
Yes, alternative energy is important, but wind farms are seriously harming bat populations, so we should also continue to look for less damaging options. 6 years ago from a Green in Fishers, IN
Energy choices should be decentralized and all fossil fuel industries should be shut down immediately. 6 years ago from a Green in Dublin, OH
If it is made ot be more efficient, such as micro wind farms that can be placed on the tops of buildings, coupled with solar panels, and be less hazardous to wildlife, then yes. However wind power in its current form is ineffective as a replacement for... 6 years ago from a Green in Durham, NC
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. 6 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. 6 years ago from a Green in Mount Hermon, CA
No, wind power can do more harm to the environment than good. 6 years ago from a Green in Denver, CO
Solar power is much less of a threat to wildlife. Alternative energy is a *must* but the wind power industry is looking to make money, not save the environment--else they would not be setting windmills up in the migration path of endangered birds. 6 years ago from a Green in Brady Lake, OH
The ability to create power should be available to the consumer, who could use the tax credit as capital investment on the project. Alternative energy should not be under the heavy hand of industry. Enough is enough!. 6 years ago from a Green in Anchorage, AK
