The exploration and development of safe alternatives to fossil fuels should be the most important global priority today. To what extend do you agree or disagree?

The mankind has used fossil fuels as a main source of power for a very long time. But nowadays many people believe that a move towards sources of energy which are not carbon-based is urgently required for some reasons such as running out of natural resources of fossil fuels and reducing the effect of global warming. In my opinion the humankind should pay more attention to use of other types of energy like wind, solar, wave or nuclear power.

It is a fact that many countries rely too much on oil, gas and coal. Although some governments are doing research into the use of alternative energy sources the vast majority are not. Energy from wind, the sea and the sun doesn't pollute the environment and is clean. Despite the fact that these alternatives to fossil fuels are not totally unproblematic, they would provide a large amount of power and the development of these safe alternatives would dramatically improve the environment in many countries.

Personally, I believe that new sources of energy, such as wind power or nuclear power, could be used more widely. In fact, some countries have been reluctant to use wind turbines, even in areas which are not densely populated, as some people think they are eyesores. In my view, they are not only useful, but beautiful as well. As for nuclear energy, many countries have made good use а nuclear power. Obviously, governments should spend more time and effort promoting the benefits of this source of energy trying to make the public understand the reasons for change.

In conclusion, it seems to me that if governments forced everyone to have a wind turbine and solar panels on the building they live in, made more use of wave power and build more nuclear station, then they would manage to prevent the dangers that are seriously threatening the Earth.
