banning is probably not topical, although those cases will probably be around next year. when alternative energy sources are discussed (solar power, hydro, ethanol, etc.) people are generally working under the assumption that the means of achieving those would be via incentives. ie granting subsidies to particular industries to encourage investment and use or alternatively placing taxes on fossil fuel industries to discourage their use.

Also keep that definition in mind against affirmatives that specify funding for a specific energy source.

With this clarification in mind (I was wondering the exact same thing as OP) will there be more weight on the T debate than usual, or will the incentive itself be largely ignored in favor of debating the effectiveness of the different energy sources?
