Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"Today, the House of Representatives has the opportunity to take America in a New Direction with the Comprehensive American Energy Security and Consumer Protection Act.
The legislation we debate today is a bold step forward that will help end our dependence on foreign oil and strengthen our national security...
This energy legislation is the result of reasonable compromise that will put us on the path toward energy independence by expanding domestic supply, protect consumers with strong action to lower the costs of energy and to protect taxpayers by making Big Oil pay for its fair share of our transition to a clean, renewable energy future, ensure a clean, green future through energy efficiency and conservation, and commit America to renewable energy and help create millions of good-paying green jobs."
