I hope Republicans remain strong in keeping yet more subsidies for renewables out of stimulus
Brookings, World Resources Institute, and most experts, including pro-renewables ones, have strongly & publicly opposed extending those dumb corrupt production subsidies since *2012*
*Eight* years ago leading renewable energy advocates, including I, advocated phasing out the the production tax credit for wind
The wind subsidy has been in place for nearly 30 years
That’s gross corruption & proof wind isn’t viable without subsidy
You can’t on the one hand claim renewables are so cheap that we don’t need fossil fuels and nuclear & on the other keep coming back to the trough for more subsidies
That they’ve apparently chosen to do so in the midst of a pandemic is gross abuse of power
