49. Why not pick the American people to be the winners and get off the "free market will save us" crap
The current players in the energy industry will never move over to wind and solar unless the Government does it for them. The petroleum companies already have the current system rigged in their favor, and unless we break their strangle hold on us, nothing will change.

There is no benefit for fossil fuel companies to combat global warming. It will take a massive effort from the Government to change the way we do business and correct our behavior to support the planet, not profits.
