Economist Opens Debate on The Future of Energy

The story, as it is, from Wired Science:

The Economist, that venerable British magazine about money, has opened a new online debate on the future of energy.

The debate presents the pro and con sides to the following proposition: “We can solve our energy problems with existing technologies today, without the need for breakthrough innovations.”

The debate is a closed discussion between the panelists but they’ve opened up parts of the site to user participation.  I’m not convinced that this debate is going to move any of the current arguments forward, as both sides will be tackling the topic through the global warming lens.  But, check it out here, on the Economist website.
