Should governments put more resources into researching alternative energy?


Most governments are using taxation to reduce carbon emissions and reduce energy consumption but isn't up to the government to try to offer alternative energy sources and if so shouldn't they be using more of the carbon tax money to research renewable sources of energy?

    Bravo on "carbon tax," but there is a lot of proof that fossil fuels are detrimental. But the same people who push "carbon tax" are the ones blocking alternative energy and pushing big oil.

    I maust agree with most everything you say, our government (UK) takes most of the price of a (US) gallon of petrol which stands at about $8.50 in tax so i don't see them rushing to change things soon.
