We would have to balance the likes of wind power with the environment etc.
But, did you know with shale gas we have supplies that will last decades?

This is what the debate is about because if it was viable we would have done a quick transformation within a couple of years.
The technology is there to have CLEANER energy but at what cost?
Nuclear energy is extremely clean and we are keeping away from that for a reason.
Wind power works but at what cost?
I agree that we should go for it but I think it's easier said than done.
Obviously, the economy is more important than having a nice planet to live on.

I'd rather we tried something cleaner and environmentally friendly.

What do they mean by renewable energy? Like, will there be solar panels on the houses?
Yep. Heat pumps instead of gas as well, electric charging points for cars
It wouldn't hurt to have a wind generator near each house.

Or maybe reduce the number of objects that consume energy? Reduce the number of useless products produced, for example. Maybe moderate our appetites? For 10,000 years we lived without expensive cars, and now all of a sudden we can't?
There are a lot of completely useless products in modern society which are produced by factories which pollute the environment.
Have you seen the movie La belle verte? I liked it.

It will always boil down to costs.


What was that you said again?

It does but what cost to the environment and us? If you think about it, we should go all out for alternatives to fossil fuels. I know it will be hard but we have to do it. Before I would brush it all off but the more I think about it, the more we should act. I am not going to suggest alternatives because I am not an expert :whistle:
