WIKIPEDIA notes that:
"Alternative energy is any energy source that is an alternative to fossil fuel. These alternatives are intended to address concerns about such fossil fuels. The nature of what constitutes an alternative energy source has changed considerably over time [and in terms evolving] controversies regarding energy use. Today, because of the variety of energy choices and differing goals of their advocates, defining some energy types as "alternative" is highly controversial. In a general sense, alternative energy as it is currently conceived, is that which is produced or recovered without the undesirable consequences inherent in fossil fuel use, particularly high carbon dioxide emissions, an important factor in global warming."
Regardless of whether or not you "believe" in science and accept that human activity on the planet is contributing to global climate change are you willing to consider installing and using alternative energy sources (among these would be wind, solar, and geothermic sources) to power your home?
If yes, why?
If not, why not?
