Former Research Associate at the Earth Policy Institute
Pro to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"While capitalizing on energy efficiency measures allows us to offset the projected increase in energy demand, switching to renewable sources of energy puts us on the path to slashing net carbon dioxide emissions 80 percent by 2020. The first priority is to replace all coal- and oil-fired electricity generation with renewable energy sources. Just as the nineteenth century belonged to coal and the twentieth century to oil, the twenty-first century will
belong to the sun, the wind, and energy from within the earth."
