Alternative Energy Can’t Replace Fossil Fuels, Report Contends

There is no green bullet that will allow various alternative energy and efficiency technologies to replace fossil fuels, which are in shorter supply than most people will acknowledge, according to a report from a six-year-old California think tank, the Post Carbon Institute, and a more mature International Forum on Globalization (IFG), founded in the early 1990s in San Francisco. As a result, the world generally has far less time than is currently thought for an energy “transition” period, an official with the institute told NGI Friday.
