All we want is a level playing field. Cut out the subsidies to oil and gas, coal and nuclear. Invest in technology to help with energy storage and transmission. The rest will take care of itself.

Or, option B, give the alternatives the same subsidies. I think we all know which way the "good" folks in Washington would go (or rather be "persuaded" to go).

I'm no fan of subsidies, but I'm also not a politician with constituents to buy votes from, er, I mean keep happy.

And, since you mentioned nuclear power, I wouldn't mind seeing more nuclear power plants personally. I live pretty close to Fermi II in southeast Michigan, so it isn't even a NIMBY proposition for me. High efficiency, no emissions, waste pellets smaller than a bottle of white-out and the largest reserves of fuel on the planet are domestic. I'm definitely a fan of nuclear power.
