The author of this article believes that solar energy (among other clean energies) can provide 5000 times the energy humans require! With cheaper technologies to harness this power, soon solar powered life (and life powered by other green non-carbon fuels) will become a reality. Unfortunately, we are cursed with an abundance of polluting fossil fuels. When non-renewable energy becomes cheap and abundant, we tend to waste it; we have no incentive to innovate and go for cleaner energy. Perhaps a better way would be that a thief steals two-thirds of our fossil fuels so we are pushed to work on clean energy.
