Most of our debt is from unpaid for wars. Perhaps we need to decrease the number of decade long optional wars, and stop spending as much on the military as the rest of the world combined!In the meantime, you do realize that the debt being left for those future generations is currently over $50K each and climbing.
I would rather subsidize the development of clean energy than subsidizing in blood and dollars our oil use from the middle east.At present, no alternate energy is economically viable and therefore must be subsidized. Leaving still more debt for those future generations you care so much about.
The US government does not control world oil prices, and no one is limiting supply, that's what you seem to have trouble getting through your head.For me, a sound energy policy would embrace both the needs of the now and future. So, I guess my position would be oil and nuclear for the now, and sensible research for the future. Not raise the price of fossil and nuclear by limiting supply in order to increase the price to make alternate more competitive.
