Debate needed on federal role in energy research

(Continued)

Innovation requires risk-taking, but that risk can deter firms from 
experimenting with promising new ideas. Creating a broad range of energy 
sources that’s able to prevent the sort of supply shocks to which the U.S. is
 becoming increasingly vulnerable will require some experimentation.

and development that can benefit the entire country is a worthwhile and 
practical use of taxpayer money, whether it's natural gas development or renewable energy. A reasonable energy policy should include all the options - and should be honest about it.
