Its not a choice

I have seen a couple of recent debates about whether improving fuel efficiencies is more effective (at reducing climate change) than moving to alternative energy sources.

This is not a choice. We need both.

Even those who deny climate change (or deny that it is caused by man's activities) must accept that fossil fuels are in limited supply. We have to make stocks last while we determine what our longer-term strategy should be.

So, let's ask the media to stop fuelling the debate about improved efficiency OR alternative energy. Let's ask them to make the case for improved efficiency AND alternative energy.
