Here's a novel thought, let's remove all the tax breaks and subsidies for all energy companies, including military protection for "oil company interests" in the Middle East. That should level the playing field and give emerging renewable technologies the ability to compete. Along with eliminating subsidies and favorable tax treatment, all companies should be held responsible for their environmental footprint. That would include emissions that contribute to climate change, disposal of toxic waste, clean-up costs of environmental spills,health costs of respiratory diseases and cancers associated with producing energy. That is how a true free market works.
