Record high prices at gas pumps and continued trouble brewing in the Middle East, Nigeria and other areas of importance to the oil driven economy, have made it clear to Americans that we are in need of developing many new avenues of energy supply and production. In short, we need to reduce our dependency on oil, for it is ultimately finite and, frankly, the cheap sources of oil. Not all oil, just the oil that is cheap to remove from the earth, is running out.

Energy consultants and analysts keep insisting that cheap oil has “peaked”, or is very soon going to peak.  What this means for us is, an expensive future, unless we can find new sources of powering our mechanized and electronic civilization, which are viable alternatives to oil.

We must also switch to alternative forms of energy, because our present forms are too damaging to the atmosphere. Some believe that this effect is a natural cycle and that there's nothing we can do about it, except prepare for the effects of it. Others believe we certainly do contribute at present, to the destruction of the environment and to things like air pollution, with our energy sources as they are and that we can change things.

Coal is another source of energy that we need to wean ourselves off. Again, it is finite and it is filthy and the mining of it is dangerous and environmentally disruptive. We can also explore new, streamlined methods for producing electricity, that we presently generate so much of, via hydro-power, so that we are less disruptive of the environment when we have need of constructing things, such as large dams.

Developing nations which have turned industrialized in recent decades, will especially need the benefits of alternative energy research and development, for they are presently doing much more environmental damage, than the United States. The United States, Japan, and some European nations have been implementing studies into and programs for the development of alternative energy sources and are therefore already leading the way, in doing less environmental damage.

The developing nations such as China and India need to look to Japan and the West, as examples of what research and development to give government backing and private investment currency to. We could also add great robustness to our own economy, by being at the forefront of such alternative energy sources development and then marketing the technologies and services to nations like India, China, Brazil, and others.

Bio-fuels from things like “supertrees” and soybeans, refined hydroelectric technology, natural gas, hydrogen fuel cells, the further building of atomic energy plants, the continued development of solar energy photovoltaic cells, more research into wind-harnessed power are all viable energy sources, that can act as alternatives to the mammoth amounts of oil and coal that we presently are so dependent on, for our very lifestyles.

The energy of the future is green.
