I can’t say that I have thought on this before, but with it being brought to my attention now I have read and done small research on the matter. I have found that switching to other sources of energy such as, wind and solar power, are expensive. Although it would seem easier on the wallet to keep up the use with the oil and perhaps trying to search for oil in other UN explored areas of the country, I think that eventually we would run into the same problem again. Then where would we search for oil?
I think it would be safe to say that I state my position being I think we should invest into other alternative energy sources. I think this kind of decision would be a worldwide one, also we could all make changes in our homes to make it a little more energy effeciant. I do think that in the long run it would be a great investment. Eventually it would pay itself off. I know that with anything we can never now all there is to know about the situation. Especially if we aren’t keeping up to date with it every time something new arises, but I think that from where I stand I don’t see why we wouldn’t just make a decision to make the switch. We could put it off for a while and search in other areas, such as Alaska, the Gulf Coast. From where I stand though, this would only put matters off until a later date, when perhaps the economy stands in a worse position. I think from any perspective, this topic could be argued. Both sides could be argued and both sides make very excellent points. I do believe though after researching everything that I could think to research on this topic I don’t find it very wise to keep putting off the need to “upgrade” to a better solution.
