Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"The United States and other nations have relied primarily on fossil fuels to meet energy needs, but concern about release of greenhouse gases and air pollution from coal-fired plants has increased interest in alternative sources, including nuclear power.
Wind power, solar energy and biofuels offer great promise. In the short term, however, they cannot replace fossil fuels or the 20 percent of electricity that comes from nuclear plants."
