No easy answer, but two that were not explored are, adjusting our living standards (not just conservation and efficiency measures) here, and controlling world population growth , especially in developing economies. Another assumption is that the economy will decide what energy mix we will end up with in the future. I don't think we have the luxury of letting economic concerns be the arbiter of our futures.

A balanced presentation of the various competing sources of energy. Perhaps almost too balanced, and thus, not especially controversial. It would be great if this film leads to the conversation and cultural change that Dr. Tinker and Mr. Lynch envision, but as comfortable as this film was to watch, it may just be watched by too few and then forgotten.
