The author argues in favor of a tentative deal on tax breaks for renewable energy being discussed by U.S. political leaders. He cites the important role played by tax breaks in the growth of industries that generate electricity through solar, wind, geothermal and other natural source. He mentions the partisan squabbling over renewable energy tax breaks that stalled the financial incentives needed by companies developing new kinds of technology. The author also talks about other interesting aspect of the deal.
