The federal government looks pretty responsible for the continuous use of fossil fuels. They are subsidizing fossils fuels which keep oil, coal, and natural gas prices lower than what they would be instead of investing in renewable energy.
Nuclear is the same. Propped up by subsidies which are in dire need of innovation and better regulation.
Fossil fuel subsidies are just wrong. Solar and wind are fighting their corner and winning even without them. They still deserve some funding though.
