President Obama will send his final budget proposal to Congress next week, and he’s seeking to again crank up the amount of money going into “clean energy”:

Haven’t we been down this road before?
In his weekly media address, Obama announced that he will send a budget to Congress on Tuesday which hits twice the current spending levels for clean energy research and development by 2020, declaring that “rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future.”
“One of the greatest challenges of our time is climate change,” the US leader said.
Additionally, Obama has proposed a $10-per-barrel oil fee.
Never let a low energy price “crisis” go to waste:
Obama: Right now, gas $1.80. Gas will be low for the foreseeable future. Use this period for transition to clean energy economy.

Obama’s budget doubling “clean energy” spending faces hurdles though:

Obama appears determined to make energy prices as high as possible by the time he leaves office.
Obama is making gas more expensive with oil tax and made electricity more expensive with carbon tax, thanks! @thehill

Because taxpayers haven’t subsidized failing technologies and business models enough… https://t.co/75eAeWStoa
