Should the U.S. government invest in renewable energy technologies?

  • Yes we should

    Boi its importwant if u say it aint then when we run out of fossil fuels u can liv without electricty friends we need to because itll cre8 jobs in da fuchure awnd etc so we should as are duty of being a human bein thx freinds 4 reading this yio

  • We should use renewable energy

    Other wise we will run out of energy or get extreme solar radiation bad stuff everybody will get skin cancer and there will be no going back you can undue the effects of global warming and if you think that not right you are supper ignorant and sstuff don't be supper ignorant and stufff

  • I don't understand why we don't already use it.

    Renewable energy is a fundamental need to the future. While it may not be as urgent as dealing with nuclear threats or terrorist attacks, it should be higher on the to-do list. An event better idea would be if a private and well-known entrepreneur was involved, such as GM or Energy Star. The US government is horribly inefficient for a reason; so it can't infringe upon rights (take it for how you think it is, whether or not the already have.) A successful private business would be way better at providing such a demand. Perhaps the US government could offer a funding reward for the first company to gain, say, 5,000,000 households on a completely renewable energy resource. I'm sure that would be awfully tempting for at least some of those companies.

  • Renewable energy will never run out

  • Noooo! We should not!

    If the weather man can't even predict the weather a week in advance, how can they tell the weather years from now? How do they really know Global Warming is true? They have been saying thst thr glaciers will melt for years now. It has not been getting hotter at all.

  • More important matters

    The US Government budget is almost always used up by the end of the year. Although it is necessary, the government runs a high risk of collapsing. When you run such a big risk, with the well being of 318.9 million people, I wouldn't do it, let alone promise it.

  • Thorium reactors are the way to go.

    Not that renewable energy is bad, really it initially had some good intentions, but now it is politicized and as such largely a way for politicians to continue to abuse that system to get more votes and money. Same goes with many (not all) eco groups. The largest problem with renewable energy though is the cost to power ratio and variables like if the wind is blowing (wind turbines obviously). This is why I personally feel that Thorium reactors are the way to go.
    But what are thorium reactors?
    Thorium reactors are often little known about for they don't actually exist in everyday life and are mostly in research development. Thorium is indeed a nuclear reactor but, the reactors we see today use Uranium or Plutonium.
    Why Thorium?
    Thorium offers a huge number of advantages over normal reactors for these reasons:
    Thorium is roughly 3-4 times more abundant than Uranium (Thorium is often thrown away as a trash metal by heavy-metal miners)
    Thorium is hard to be used for weapons (only about less than 2 percent of the by-product)
    No threat of melt-down
    Does not need to be enriched to used for fuel
    Also Thorium is safe after only one hundred compared to Uranium's one million (The remaining material after the reaction obviously)

    With that: Why don't we use Thorium?
    The main reason for the lack of use comes from the Cold War (70's specifically) when research was done, however it was rejected for Thorium was rejected because guess what- It can't be weaponized.

    In essence Thorium is great element on the periodic table and wasn't used because it can't be used for war (people tend to make and advance a lot of things because of war... Airplane, rocket, etc.)
    Lesson: spread the word about how great thorium is, and do something about theses damned politicians.

  • why?

    If a good idea in renewable energy exists, why wouldn't private investors jump on it? Why do you think we need government to do this? To create solyndra or ethanol? I think it's ignorant if you don't realize there are thousands of people right now looking for business opportunities in every corner of the world and they are better at it than the government. Why should I believe that politicians care about the environment while us mere mortals don't? WHen we all realize that these are simply emotion-ridden topics politicians use to play us?

  • Nope.

    If the US government is going to "invest" in renewable energy, it is different from when private people invest in renewable energy using their own money prudently. When the gov't uses this money, it soaks it up from other areas of the economy destroying jobs. And, gov't is often inefficient and because there is no price mechanism, resources cannot be allocated correctly. Only the free market can invest in renewable energy if this venture is profitable, if it is, the free market will fill this need, and the customers of the market will pick the winners and losers, not some corrupt bureaucrats.
