Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"However, abundant supplies of renewable resources do not guarantee abundant supplies of affordable energy. Even with sizable subsidies, renewable energy is generally more expensive than energy produced from nonrenewable sources. We rely on oil, natural gas, coal and even nuclear power today because they provide us with more efficient and affordable energy than renewable alternatives. And they are likely to do so for many years to come."
"Blowing in the Wind: But is Renewable Energy Affordable Energy?," Texas Public Policy Institute, Apr. 20, 2005
