Assessing alternative energy technologies
Scientists and policy makers must use this period of grace to assess and develop alternative forms of energy, say M.S. Dresselhaus and I.L. Thomas, in their review of the current development and potential of alternative energy technologies.
Ultimately, the energy security of future generations will not only depend on reaching acceptable scientific and technological solutions, but will also require international cooperation on science policies to ensure continued prosperity and the safety of our environment.
