The race to provide our civilization with alternative energy is intensifying, and the dominant coal era seems to be reaching its final stretch. On the one hand, our foremost visionary thinkers are racing to accelerate the feasibility of alternative energy tech such as solar, wind, geothermal, and others. While on the other hand, some of our brightest minds in academia and outside it are doing revolutionary research and thinking of ways to attempt to control the Earth’s weather, in hopes of recreating the biosphere via our own means and methods. Will we succeed? In this section we will gauge our progress, and hopefully by the time it’s all said and done, we will have a more positive impact on our dear planet and it’s future.
