Title:
Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute (FPRI)
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“The oil curse has worked on both producers and consumers…In the consuming countries, it has led to overwhelming political pressure to keep the price of petroleum products from rising, thereby removing much of the incentive to substitute away from the current dependency on fossil fuels.”
