Two Cents Plain
A stunning new report just issued by the Bush administration finds that for under 2 cents a day per household, Americans could get 300 gigawatts of wind by 2030.Of course, the allegedly-unaffordable subsidies for nukes amount to 3 cents a day per household. There is a quite a difference between the two figures (2 and 3). For one thing the 2 cents is what they promise they will spend, whereas the 3 cents is what they are spending.
There's also the little matter of why we should believe that the output per subsidy dollar will mysteriously increase for wind and the even bigger problem of why we should trust a report that lists the jobs created by a technology as a benefit instead of a cost.
