Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"Experience tells us the wind in most places does not blow steadily enough and predictably enough to be an economical power source. Moreover, the sun’s energy is too widely dispersed and the land area required to collect it too vast for solar to become a large-scale power source. At best, a pleasant niche exists in the remotest of places and for the most affluent enviro-zealots."
"Solar Power: Too Good to Be True," www.heartland.org, June 2005
