ABSTRACT
The article argues that alternative energy sources will fail to meet the demands of world energy consumption and calls for the adoption of conservation methods to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. It relates the negative impact of the mandated support given by the U.S. government to renewable fuels, particularly ethanol and biodiesel, on the prices of corn, soy, chicken, pork and beef. Criticisms against wind power, solar energy and geothermal power are outlined.
