United States Climate Action Partnership (USCAP) Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
Reasoning:

“There are a number of technologies that are currently available that emit little or no GHGs, such as wind, solar, and nuclear power, hybrid vehicles, and numerous energy efficiency technologies. The cost-effective deployment of existing technologies
to improve energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions should be a priority, as it will yield emission reductions in the near-term while new technologies are developed.”
