ABSTRACT
The article examines the challenge posed by the issue of energy for the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. It is noted that the leadership in the U.S. House and Senate and Obama believe that renewable energy can quickly replace fossil fuels. The notion was rejected by Scott Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin, claiming that in reality, energy independence requires realistic and scalable alternatives.
