    That's it: Go.
    I support green energy, but not a puppet liar giving away millions of dollars to his friends under the disguise of creating it.

    I don't believe in Green Energy because it makes my job considerably more difficult. Every time that one of these wind/solar/hydro facilities comes online we have to get it added to all of our maps and make sure all of our field personnel know about it for their safety.

    What job makes it necessary to record when dams, turbines, or panels are built?

    I work in the Maps & Records Department of a major Electric/Gas utility company. We don't (and aren't allowed) to have our own generation, but for the safety of our workers we need to map the locations of all 500kW and larger generation on some of our maps and even down to 3kW in other systems.

    Support it as a supplemental source.

    I use as much passive alternative sources as possible... solar for heating water, rain barrels on gravity feed, recycle, reuse, etc.

    As Lizzie said, I don't want alternatives to become law. People still need to make their own choices.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    I support the concept of people being less dependent on traditional energy sources.
    I would be hesitant to use the term "green energy" because it implies concepts outside energy use and conservation.
    A friend of mine said the green movement has too much watermelon smell
    Also I would not be too quick to exclude petrol-based combustion engines, as they are most likely to be part of the solution.
    (Hydrocarbons can be man made from other energy sources, store well, and we already have an infrastructure in place.)

    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    It depends what is expected from my support.

    Poll is simple. But the answer is complicated. What is a "green" energy? How much is it really worth it, without government subsidies? And does it exist in reality?
