Chu claims wind, solar competitive by 2019Posted: March 25, 2011
As reported by Bloomberg:
Wind and solar power may compete with fossil fuels, without aid from government subsidies, within the next decade, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu said. “It’s not going to be three decades,” Chu said today at an event in Washington sponsored by the Pew Charitable Trust… China and other nations are promoting policies to support cleaner energy. “This is a race,” he said.
If “clean energy” is a race, it is one to the bottom — and we should let the Chinese “win” that one.
