US265 - Redirect Funds from Fossil Fuels to Green Energy
Prioritize green research by redirecting research funds from fossil fuels and other dead-end industries toward research in wind, solar and geothermal. We will invest in research in sustainable, nontoxic materials, closed-loop cycles that eliminate waste and pollution, as well as organic agriculture, permaculture, and sustainable forestry.
Renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, biomass and geothermal have shown promise but they need to compete in a competitive market, free from government subsidies. I believe that these sources of energy have a future in our energy portfolio but they must compete on a level playing field. When we insist on forcing consumers to choose amongst non-competitive options we simply shift higher costs onto them and further strain their household budgets.
