Energy - Introduction

Since the industrial revolution, energy has facilitated rapid development. Until relatively recently fossil fuels seemed inexhaustible but as more countries in the world seek to emulate the energy centric societies of the west, the conflict between growing demand and diminishing resources has emerged. Alternative energy sources are required as a matter of urgency and some technologies have been embraced, prematurely as it turns out, under the claimed threat of man-made climate change. What is required is a rational assessment of the threats to energy supplies and exploration of viable alternative to fossil fuels.
