Call on Congress to give the same tax benefits to clean, healthy, renewable wind energy that they do to dirty fossil and nuclear fuels.
The world needs a global energy plan SOON if we are to reverse global warming with its myriad costly and possibly devastating consequences. Coal-fired power plants, gas-guzzling cars and trucks, energy-wasting buildings, fossil-fuel dependent air travel, and lime for cement all contribute. Nuclear energy costs too much and diverts resources from quicker, more effective carbon-sparing technologies.
A number of energy plans have been offered. The challenge is to get policymakers to adopt a credible plan before we hit a tipping point and the problem soars out of control.
Institute for Energy and Environmental Research founder Arjun Makhijani has recently published a comprehensive plan for carbon-free, nuclear free energy for the United States. The executive summary is available: http://www.ieer.org/sdafiles/15-1.pdf
