Only 19% of US survey respondents accurately guessed that the fossil fuel companies get 10 billion/year in subsidies.
- 34% of responders said the government should spend all the $10 Billion on subsidizing solar.
- 39% said we should give half of the $10 billion to solar and the other half to the dirty coal companies
- 8% thought we should keep things the way they are.
The above means that at least 73% of U.S. wants to grab 5 billion in fossil fuel subsidies and transfer that tax funded mojo to solar. It also means that 8% are completely nuts for fossil fuel.

Solar PV is Environmentally Friendly: Over its lifetime a single gram of silicon (main component in solar cells) can produce 3,300 kWh of electricity without releasing life threatening toxic and radioactive substances. A single gram of uranium can produce 3,800 kWh of electricity. However, a uranium atom can only be fissioned once, whereas a silicon solar cell can absorb photons repeatedly to generate electricity. Gram for gram, silicon and uranium produce comparable amounts of electricity.
