Energy Subsidies: What If?

A pretty cool graphic via Roger Ebert's blog:

This is a good response to the usual knocks against solar energy from conservatives. Despite all the doom and gloom rehtoric, a greener country is possible! It would just take the government deciding they no long want to prop up energy sources that are killing us and our planet, and put that money into energy sources that won't kill us.

With the political power of the oil/gas/coal industries this isn't an easy task, but it's not as if there's some permanent bond we have with dirty energy that can't be overcome.
