Subsidies for solar energy? Why not?


This infographic from the always provocative 1bog.org -- One Block Off the Grid -- illustrates the ways in which current energy policies stack the deck in favor of fossil fuel and imagines what the situation would be if solar received equivalent subsidies.  It would be interesting (embarrassing) to include nuclear power in this comparison.

  1. If more governments look into the benefits of solar power and start to subsidize alternative energy sources it will save countries and resources in the long run.

  2. The solar power is considered as the new energy for us and it is green power for the environment. We should encourage more people using it in the life.
