IMHO, there needs to be all different kinds of energy. And, of course, many now realize that we need to develop more green energy sources (solar, wind, tidal, and even nuclear) and move to them as much as possible. I think that we should put a lot of R&D resources into these forms of energy.
BUT, Oil is a liquid and fairly efficient form of energy and will be needed for a long time. The processes to upgrade Alberta oil sands from bitumen to petroleum products are being improved all the time.
It doesn’t do anyone any good to protest – help improve things – don’t just complain.
