Oil, gas and nuclear energy have permanent supports that do not require renewal--just not repeals and elimination. However, green energy has been major job producers leading CA to have added more jobs than TX in recent months. Policy Uncertainty Is Bad for Business--and interferes with other sources of funding (both investors and loans from banks) because how much will be needed to implement business plans is unknown--do you need to ask for all of i,t assuming the unfair competition of other energy sectors with taxpayer supports, or do you fall on your face by asking for the amount needed if supports are continued? Neither choice is necessarily what either banks or investors want you to do.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. The oil, coal and nuclear energy don't need these subsidies, so why not just switch and give it to Green Energy?

Green energy should be subsidized, this is a consensus in many parts of the world.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854

When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.

Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.

The planet is in bad health already because of what we do. We need to do things to help not hurt.
