The author recommends ways to make alternative fuels more economically viable. He notes that alternative fuels failed to materialize during the 1990's due to the dropping of oil prices, forcing alternative fuel developers to close down. He thinks that alternative energy will fully materialize if oil prices remain high. He recommends that oil subsidies be restructured to prevent oil price rollback.
