Another thing John, when we 1. Stop preferential tax treatment for extractive industries i.e. the depletion allowance 2. Allow oil companies to pay for their own security instead of handing the bill to the tax payer while said oil companies pocket the profits and 3. Apply a levy to cover the costs of the environmental and health consequences of these same industries.......... then and only then would you have any leg to stand on in regards to your constant whining regards government support for emerging green technology. That is how a truly free market operates.
