Conservative? Not when it comes to energy!

One of the things that always infuriated me about Ronald Regan was that upon arriving at the White House he ordered the solar panels that Jimmy Carter had installed taken down. How short sighted was this so-called great American President? Apparently very short sighted! If the U.S. government had subsidized alternative energy to a fraction of the degree that we subsidized agriculture, the auto industry or defense contractors, to name a few, we would be light years ahead of the rest of the world today and a true leader in the stewardship of the planet.
