Alternative energy is something people would be foolish to ignore. Not just because it is cleaner for the environment, but because it in the future it will be the only fuel available to power society. Many people fail to realize traditional methods for fuel are not limitless. This will not effect the current generation, but the generations in the future will have to deal with this problem. If this problem is not dealt with, there will be no fuel in the future. The sooner people learn how to use alternative fuel to power society, the sooner they will not have to worry about fuel running out.
It is going to take a period of decades for the switch to alternative energy to complete, and that is if large corporations and populations readily make the switch. In all likelihood, large corporations will be slow to give up profits from traditional fuels, and people will be slow to temporarily leave their comfort zones to make the switch to alternative energy. This will lead to people panicking when they find out traditional fuel will run out.
There are a lot of ways for people to get fuel without using traditional fuels such as oil and coal. Wind and solar power are great examples of alternative forms of energy. If awareness is properly raised about the need to switch to alternative energy, and it is shown how easy it is to use alternative fuel, future generations will not have a problem switching to alternative means for fuel.
The main reason people have not already made the switch to alternative fuel is because they are used to traditional fuel methods. It is no secret the environment is being ruined because of the materials people now use for fuel. If the switch to alternative fuel is not made fuel will run out, and the environment will be ruined. Making the switch to alternative fuel will save the planet, provide people with more efficient energy, and keep people from ever having to worry about running out of energy to power the planet. The benefits of switching to alternative fuel far outweigh the benefits of using traditional fueling methods.
