Daryl G. Press, PhD Biography

Associate Professor of Government at Dartmouth College
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"

“The coming decades may present serious energy-related challenges to the world. Global warming may require collective action on a
global scale to reduce emissions, a daunting task. Furthermore, even though oil is nowhere near running out, the world’s growing
demand for energy and the finite nature of the petroleum reserves suggest that in the long term petroleum prices will rise. People will
therefore need to develop alternative energy sources to supplement the energy reaped from current sources.”
