As we know that the fossils fules are limited and these are dicreasing day by day. What will happen on that day when all the fossils will run off?

I think we will result to other sources of energy like geothermal, wind, solar and etc. there is a study that concludes that if the oil rich country run out of juice, the next country that will be powerful are the countries that are rich with alkaline. Then we will be getting energy from batteries, but I guess it won't be as effective as of now. Or maybe, nuclear energy will be a hit.

We are still using enegy source like solar, geothermal, and wind energy but not on such a big scale that they can make a country runing without using fossils fules. We also can't use nuclear energy for our vehicals because it release so much energy.

It's because we are not yet pushed to use alternative energy. We are still dependent to oil and most of our machines are still based on oil/fuel as source of energy. But when we run out of fuel, I think we will be forced to improvise, create and improve possibilities to utilize other sources to its maximum potential.

Many experts believe that before fossil fuel runs off there will be war on oil. Of course BIG countries will seek oil so much that every single drop of oil will be expensive. The only solution to avoid the war on oil is to find an alternative source of oil/fuel aside from fossil fuels. We all know that oil is the one that makes the country running. Man will still find a solution to that problem soon enough.

Yes, you are right that it is the oil which make a country running. But a war on oil will never be fought since our scientiest will be abel to use hydrogen bs a economic fule. We use liquid hydrogen in rockets but we still are not able to use it as a economic fule for our vehicles and industries.

The world is realising this and steps are being taken to reduce our dependency on the fossil fuels as they are very limited and cause pollution as well. Many other alternatives are being created like fuel made from plants known as biofuels. So, by the time fossil fuels run off we would be dependent on other fuels.

Yes, but can we produce bio fule on such a big scale? The answer is no then what will be future fule? I think that they be 'hydrogen' and solar energy.

solar energy and wind energy are great alternatives to fossil fuel energy. there is an inexhaustible supply of both solar and wind energy so therefore a shortage off supply will never happen. and the most important aspect of these two sources of energy is they are friendly to the environment. they do not pollute the air with their toxic fumes or run offs and their sources are free namely from the wind and from the sun.

There already attempts to find alternative energy sources but production costs and usage practicality have made them less viable. For example what safe and efficient energy source can be used for an aeroplane? How far can an electric vehicle go, and how long is the recharge time? Unless the drawbacks of alternative energy sources are reduced and/or minimised certain parts of the world will be back to the dark ages when the crunch comes.

In that case, the big oil will have to find another way to pollute our environment , ocean and the earth's atmosphere again, they will be very angry that human kind survival are no more subjected to the threat of environmental disaster by their fossil fuel.
