Beyond Fossil Fuels Photograph by Sarah Leen
Insatiable appetites meet at a truck stop in Cabazon, California, where a larger-than-life T. rex lurks beyond an SUV. Such lumbering vehicles symbolize our tremendous thirst for fossil fuels. With pollution rising and petroleum production estimated to peak in coming decades, experts say we must develop alternative power sources, including renewables like wind and solar and biofuels such as biodiesel and plant waste. "We have to look to future energy sources and technologies, not to what we used for fuel in the past," says John Byrne, director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Delaware. "Renewable energy sources are the young technology. They're the opportunities that will provide environmental health and economic growth in the future."
