Over the last couple of years every goverment has discussed and debated the use of Alternative Energy to be used in widespread commercial, industrial
and home use. Discussing if the Pro's outweight the Cons, how many years would the goverment and involved parties need to complete construction of
such equiptment and how much money would be needed.
Many people fear the change as the energy they have mostly used all there lives has been very sufficient and the whole cost and converting of they're
house, workspace and whole living enviroment is niggling at the back of there minds.
Are you willing to spend god knows how much money on parts that have not been around long enough to know if they are the best design to be outdated
and replaced and discontinued? Take BetaMax for example…..remember the first VCR, people went out and bought them, they were replaced fast by the VHS
version and people were lets just say annoyed. All these machines and you cant get the tapes anymore!!
Conviencience in a day where people cant even get up to change the channel on tv with out the help of a remote, where they have use of microwaves,
cell phones, GPS, air conditioning, air travel, internet, ect…. Do you expect to take a step backwards, spend all their money, and make their fast
paced life any more hectic taking their car to one of a handful of mechanics that knows how to work on the new stuff? Maybe lose your car for a week
or two because there just is not enough people that know how to fix it? Or maybe driving 30 or 40 miles to take it there? Or paying this person insane
amounts of money to fix something that is so new that he is one of few that knows about it so they have no choice to bring it to him?
The key is to improve apon what we have now. Modify it to make it acceptable. If not make the change optional for those that don’t want to and they
will come around when something comes out that actually works and is worth while. Like hemp.
I have created a small list of arguments to why we should not swap over to AE:
1: green power is more expensive than fossil fuels, the development and science of alternative energy is still in its early days and more care and
time should be taken so we can get everything right the first time, instead of wasting millions of pounds in building the stations and findin out they
need fixed months later.
2: green power is not efficient. There needs to be more develpment and information directed to everyone involved in using it. Unless green power is as
efficient as fossil fuelsm we should continue to use fossil fuels. There is just note enough green power to meet the demands for power.
3: Global Warming is not real. There is no real scientific proof that GW is a real phenomenon. The Earth naturally goes through climate cycles
changing sometimes very dramatically, without the infulence of industrial pollution. The Earth also produces greenhouse gases naturally.

There is also the main deal of the whole recycling of old fossil fuels to AE...modern day recycling means u have to seperate all ur diffrent rubbish
and to be honest its a bloody hassle, why recycle something when most people cant be bothered to recycle.
Other main problems are is that emission laws are pushing it, and other main industries, such as oil which is used for many things, will suffer and
not only will goverments have problems but other countries who mass produce oil for a financial gain shall have severe problems. If they keep on
suppresing the information that Fossil fuels are the best, then oil, and coal industrie infrastructures could collapse.
All goverments and indutrial organisations have plans for Global Warming and energy efficiency, to lower there output of the dangerous gases and
pollution. I beleive if over the next few years they can lower this again, they will do much more good than a badly inefficient AE system, which may
not work at all due to no wind/sun/nuclear power etc.
Unless the goverment can come up with some solid proof that AE works 100% and will outweight the risk, fossil fuels will still be the most reliable
fuel source known to man.
