Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"If we are to combat this looming crisis we will need a mixed bag of solutions. These will need to include command and control techniques including the use of renewable fuels such as wind and solar power, sequestration of fossil fuels, and most importantly the use of nuclear technology.
