Renewable Energy Policy Uncertainty Stalls A Fossil Fuel-Free Future, Experts Say

February, 2013
Huffington Post

From his solar panel manufacturing facility in Marysville, Wash., Gary Shaver can see and hear passing coal trains.

"The tracks are maybe a block away, and this is not a Texas block," said Shaver, president of Silicon Energy, LLC.

To get to and from his factory, workers and clients have to cross those tracks, which may soon become heavily trafficked if proposed Pacific Northwest ports are given the go-ahead and begin exporting coal to China.

Meanwhile, China continues to ship solar panels to the U.S.

Kammen & Riordan: Coal's no way to make the job market hop

They could use the money instead to fund energy-efficiency and renewable-energy projects. Per dollar invested, efficiency and renewables generate many more jobs than fossil fuels.
