Burning the Alternative Energy Straw Man with oil

Professor Peter Grossman’s  “The History of U.S. Alternative Energy Development Programs: A Study of Government Failure.” has ample energy for a thoroughly smoked straw man… and summarizes thusly:

Whether a market failure has or has not existed with respect to alternative energy technologies, it is nonetheless relevant to ask whether the government’s action creates a solution or a failure of its own. The importance of government failure has been highlighted in recent years as government efforts in some domains appear to produce far more costs than benefits, and sometimes may worsen whatever market failure they were intended to correct.

The federal gov’t has a long history of alternative fuel failures that waste our tax dollars.  Stop this straw man in his tracks the second it crosses the threshold of a leftists’ lips.
