Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"Across the South, needs are different and a standardized approach to the transition would not be appropriate. For oil producers in the South, the hydrogen economy spells a significant drop in oil consumption and revenues, potentially within 20 years. While this allows for at least a short period of time in which to develop alternative uses for fossil fuils, such alternatives will have to be identified and the research and production capabilities put in place over the next 10 to 15 years."

Experts Individuals with PhDs, heads of government, members of state or federal legislative bodies, and individuals with graduate degrees and significant post-graduate involvement in alternative energy or fossil fuel issues. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
