The Case For Zero Subsidies

Talking about energy always seems to bring up issues with "energy policy". At heart, what this essentially means is who gets what federal largesse and how. It's why I've pretty much consistently opposed the idea of a national energy policy for years, and so, apparently, do two old foes, Jerry Taylor of the libertarian Cato Institute and Dan Becker of the Sierra Club. I don't have time to write a long piece on this today, but it's worthwhile reading from Lynne at Knowledge Problem.
