The way Congress funds clean energy is a mess. Max Baucus thinks there’s a better idea. "Baucus, who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, put out a plan (pdf) to dump all 42 existing tax incentives for specific energy sources. Instead, he would create two broad tax credits that would boost clean energy without picking specific technologies or explicitly taking sides between, say, nuclear energy and wind power."
Nice overview. I'd still rather have a carbon tax.
