Even according to the most optimistic projections, the supply of oil and natural gas will be exhausted during the 21st century. Humanity must start to look for alternative and possibly cleaner energy sources that will be in place before we hit the actual crisis. In this project we shall examine the accuracy of these predictions, identify alternative energy sources and develop recommendations for the preparation of their use. The impact of these policies on our health, economy and politics will be considered.
