I think the US should subsidize alternative energies. This seems like the most practical and productive means to wean ourselves off of gas. We need to subsidize these alternative energies while we are not desperate for alternatives so that when we really need alternative energies they will be there. Furthermore, we wont be left behind other countries that have already promoted alternative energies.
The United States should definitely subsidize and support alternative energies. Our significant dependence upon fossil fuels is not only depleting our natural resources, but our ecological environment as well. Also, it is within the federal governments job to take care of its people; the job search applies to this category, and with the support of alternative energies, a vast amount of new jobs will become available.
