Existing sources of energy such as fossil fuels and uranium will eventually be depleted. If we want sustainable energy, it must come from renewable sources. This talk by Bob Lloyd examines if this can be done in time with existing resources. He also looks at problems, namely that our existing financial system is based upon continued economic growth and economic growth is based on a cheap and expanding energy supply.
