The author talks about the scarcity of oil and where man can avail other sources of energy before the current source ran out. Petroleum geologists admitted that more than 95% of all retrievable oil has already been found. The author believes that it is in the sun that man can get its largest alternative source of energy. But he adds that the cost of technology needed to collect and use it is quite expensive. Governments, he stresses, should encourage the use of solar energy by developing technology so that there will be a brighter future for everyone.
