    What is the best alternative energy source?

    Whether it be: wind, solar, hydrogen, nuclear, etc. What do you think the best source of alternative energy is?

    I dont think there is a single BEST alternative.  Each has it positives and negatives.  Wind and solar work only when mother nature cooperates. Nuclear has radiation issues.  Hydrogen, is expensive to produce in mass quantity.  Bio fuels dont have a lot of energy per gallon and they tend to cause food prices to rise. 

    However, a combined approach is a good way to go.  I also think that micro power is better.  With todays tech, almost every home and office building could be a power generation plant.  Thus the need for big central power plants would not be needed.  Combine wind, solar and hydrogen to power your home and office.  Its doable now.

    I totally agree with RodEccles here.

    I have taken this idea as far as I can on my own. Time for somebody else to take over.

    Developing this system might provide an excellent 'business-start-up' opportunity for the right person.

    I think solar and wind power are the future.  We have to stop relying on oil.

    The hydrogen fuel cell. The only drawback is you need to produce hydrogen which takes power, so unless the fuel used to create the hydrogen is green ...your end result is not green. Hemp oil is a perfect way to power the hydrogen generation, which results in a zero emission, carbon negative, green energy source. Also Diesel engines can run on straight hemp oil!!!
