Give North Korea Green Power

Geoff Styles wrote a great post yesterday regarding an alternative solution to solving North Korea's energy problem faster, greener, and without nukes.

We should give them wind turbines, that combined with their existing hydroelectric would get them the power they need faster and without building them nuclear plants that could be used for bad intentions.

Geoff is on to something, why shouldn't the US government make all of their external power aid in the form of renewable solutions?

Sure it would be more expensive in many cases, but instead of just subsidizing research we're building solutions, we're learning from manufacturing, moving down the cost/experience curves.
