RESEARCH (Elementary): Renewable Energy

Resolved: The United States should shift to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible.
BACKGROUND:
100% renewable energy is a goal shared by at least 160 American cities, 10 counties, and eight states as of Sep. 16, 2020, according to the Sierra Club. As a policy, 100% renewable energy means not using fossil fuel energy or nuclear energy, with a goal for implementation generally between 2035 and 2050. People in favor of switching to 100% renewable energy policies argue that it’s not about whether to convert to all renewable energies but how, because fossil fuels are not sustainable as fuels or as healthy options for humans or the environment. Opponents of switching to 100% renewable energy policies argue that natural gas and/or nuclear power are necessary to bridge fuels already in use with low carbon outputs that can help lower global temperatures quicker than renewables alone.
