I affirm that alternative energy is the future of the world we live in. Alternative energy should replace fossil fuel use because it is saving our precious planet and cost less money in the long run. Some argue that the technology isn't advanced but I know the tech is there because we are seeing smart companies move towards renewable supplies.

Hi everybody,
I'm Adil Muhammad, Qatar and I'm glad debating this topic.
Pro didn't tell us the roles, so I don't know whether the first round is just acceptance.
That's why, I'm going to start rebuttal from the first round
1. Pro didn't tell us what is (or what is meant by, in this debate) 'Alternative energy'.
2. Pro said that it costs less money, do fossil fuels cost more or nuclear energy???
3.Pro has the debate's topic: 'Can' and then starts debating 'Should'
Character capacity very short.

Yes, nuclear energy can replace fossil fuels, and very easily. Debate over.

Incredibly possible. A 2006 MIT study found that the earth currently holds 13,000 zettajoules of geothermal energy, with 2,000 being easily tapable with improved technology. Every country in the world, all together, uses about half a zettajoule a year.

Do you count nuclear energy as alternative energy and would you include nuclear fusion in this, even though it's not discovered yet?
