What can the U.S. do to keep up with China and other countries in the clean energy race?
The Senate has stalled action on legislation that prices carbon emissions and sets a renewable electricity standard, leading many energy experts to warn that the U.S. will fall far behind other countries, namely China and India, in developing clean energy like wind, solar, and "clean coal" technology, while continuing its dependence on fossil fuels.
What proposals in Congress right now would help spur the development of domestic clean energies? What can the administration do in this area to drive innovation and development? What does the U.S. risk in losing the clean energy race?
