Everyone is up in arms over solar company Solyndra's bankruptcy and today Congressional hearings begin in Washington to try to sort out exactly what happened.

"With taxpayers potentially on the hook for this half-billion dollar bust, it's time to sound the alarm about the remaining $10 billion in loan guarantees set to expire Sept. 30," Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., said in a joint statement Tuesday. "Let's learn the lessons of Solyndra before another dollar goes out the door."

Does this really mean it is time to stop funding clean energy or is it simply an opportunity to learn from our mistakes and move forward?  As a taxpayer, I am not ready to give up on subsidizing clean energy, are you?
