Con to the question "Can Alternative Energy Effectively Replace Fossil Fuels?"
"We desperately need a no-nonsense approach to energy policy that focuses on production of oil and natural gas in North America. Despite all the buzz over alternative sources, we will continue to rely on fossil fuels to meet most of our energy requirements through mid-century or longer. But the administration seems too focused right now on trendy renewable energy sources to recognize this...
If the administration's objective is to reduce our nation's dependence on the Middle East and curb greenhouse-gas emissions, there are more practical and less costly ways to achieve those twin goals than obtaining all the BTUs we need through a combination of biofuels, wind, solar and other alternative energy sources."
