Taxpayers Protection Alliance Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“Government has attempted to support the solar industry by picking winners and losers in the marketplace, often failing miserably in the process. There remains nearly unfettered access to public money by companies in the solar energy field and the limited risk assumed by businesses in the alternative energy arena due to governmental support leaves the industry is rife with poor decision-making and unseemly business practices. Despite the expensive failures of America’s solar energy experiment, there remains little indication that solar energy will ever become a viable, large-scale energy resource for our country.”
