While I support the funding here, stripping funding from alternative energy is absurd. In a world embracing alternative energy. Denmark recently generated 140% of their energy needs with wind power. Germany generated 74% of their electrical needs with renewables. This is a vibrant and potentially profitable field. Not to mention essential if you want to leave a stable world to your children and grandchildren. Now is the time to become more deeply invested, not less. Now if you want to pair the funding with reductions in tax incentives to oil, gas, and coal companies; I'm fully onboard. As written it is a cynical move to cut renewables and cheapen our futures.
