Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"You have to understand and ultimately agree that we use fossil fuels for a lot of good reasons, and we're not going to quit using them for the foreseeable future - and I mean for the next 30 to 50 years - because they are what drives the global economy...
We will not move away from fossil fuels, we will not move away from oil, unless or until we find something cleaner, cheaper, more convenient, or all of the above."
