Argument: Investing in green energy is not a solution to current US oil demand
Argument's parent debate
- ANWR.org - "The nation must either produce more [oil] or import more. Eighty-eight percent of the energy for America's transportation, industry, government and residential needs comes from oil, gas and coal. No combination of conservation, technology or alternatives can come close to replacing these fossil fuels. It will take years for research, testing, permitting, construction, and distribution systems for replacement alternatives to be realized. When alternative energy sources become practical and economical, Americans will use them. Until then, fossil fuels must be relied upon...the nation must either produce more or import more."
