I like the idea of leveling the competition between energy sources. However, fossil fuels need to be held accountable for the cost to human health through smog, mining wastes, and other pollutants. Solar and wind producers have some environmental costs to offset as well, i.e. bird kills. If we force energy producers to offset these costs through fees, and THEN end all the other tax subsidies, the energy sources will be competing on the same level.
