Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When i was invited to the Reagan White House to debate tax support for renewable energy, and the technology of windpower, we were just in the first years of the Great Deregulation. Any number of industries were being deregulated, but of course not energy.

I told them we wouldn't need any subsidy if they deregulated energy while including all external costs, period. Further, i threatened to make a media circus of their exclusion of energy from deregulation.

They decided not to cut the renewable support. Not because they took may threats seriously, but because we were then just too small potatoes. At least that's my analysis.
