As technology continues to improve, we need to use fossil fuels more efficiently and with less pollution. Because we have huge reserves of natural gas, we must learn to use natural gas wherever possible as long as we can keep it clean.
Wind and Solar energy sources are part of our future, and there will be more utilization of these renewable sources as technology keeps improving.
Oil is going to be around for quite a long time. We continue to improve ways to extract oil with fewer and fewer dangers, and we need to make sure that the oil companies stay current with safe procedures to lessen the chance of environmental disasters.
With the proper management of these resources, we can become totally and permanently energy independent.
