Senior Policy Analyst for the Natural Resources Defense Council
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"My New Year's resolution is to start thinking big. This is harder than it sounds given that the technologies I think about, renewable energy technologies, each generally provide less than 1 percent of the markets that they serve (and the ones that provide more than 1 percent hydropower and ethanol from corn have limited potential for growth). But if we're going to avoid catastrophic climate change, this has got to change and change big."
