President of Strategic Energy & Economic Research Inc. (SEER)
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"My view on alternatives is that of a long-term optimist, short-term skeptic. I disapprove of promoting technologies or fuels that are not yet economic (photovoltaic for mass use, ethanol in the US), but believe that many can and will contribute over time to phasing out more expensive and/or dirtier fuels."
Experts Individuals with PhDs, or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to alternative energy or fossil fuel issues. Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to alternative energy or fossil fuel issues.
