According to the Brookings Institution, the green energy sector is projected to receive $150 billion of taxpayer money through 2014. Despite annual deficits in excess of $1 trillion, the administration's budget proposes to make many of these subsidies permanent, believing they are necessary to keep renewables competitive in the energy market and to spur job creation. Opponents contend these subsidies distort energy markets and merely shift the costs for renewables on to taxpayers. The High Noon Debate on Energy will examine the success of energy-related subsidies and the impact of government policy on long term job creation, energy security, and freely-functioning energy markets.
