Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"Renewable energy resources emerged by the year 2000 into sufficient technological and market maturity to
begin to affect global primary energy production, even though still very modest in total percentage terms. If this
is indeed the tip of the next great energy transition, then our own history suggests that, by 2030, we should be
deep into the emergence of the next age of energy resources."
"The Renewable Energy Transition," www.solarcatalyst.com, 2005
