We are already paying for wind through Congress approved subsidies through our federal taxes without which wind would not be a viable source of generation today. Cap & Trade would increase costs of generation for many utilities that would pass to consumer-tax payers further costs. This has been an orchestrated pitch to spend billions only on 'green' w/o using more coal,shale,gas and oil in the USA territory. Why not give credits to companies to create 'cleaner' fuel in these four types at the same time (generate jobs)? The DOE stats show only 7% renewable energy available in USA; of this, wind is a sub-group, only 7% of the 7%! The economuy cannot just go in renewables without major impacts and costs to the economy.
