Follows the search for a single, clean energy source that will eliminate society's need for fossil fuels. Dr. M. Sanjayan, lead scientist at The Nature Conservancy, considers the battle to produce enough clean, renewable energy to meet the world's increasing demand. The program examines the numbers: How many people will be on the planet by 2050 and how much energy will we need? What happens if we grow and consume at our current rate? It's common knowledge that we use enormous amounts of energy, but until it's quantified, it's impossible to grasp the true extent of how much is wasted.
