I think that your position covers most of the important topics concerning this issue, but is not yet quite convincing. You do not include any facts, although I am sure you will in the final paper. You state personal opinions as they are facts, such as when you said that you "know" that petroleum will be depleted within two generations. You did do a good job of identifying the problem, acknowledging the possible solutions, and stating what you think you should be and, and to a lesser extent, how. In conclusion, I think that you have the opportunity to turn this into a very convincing paper, but much research and a more objective stance will be required.
