2057 The World part,Â made by the discovery channel with Michio Kaku the renowned physicist. This episode predicts the future energy crisis. With oil reserves nearly depleted, tension between China and the U.S escalates, war is inevitable. Fossil fuelsÂ alternatives are explored in the program. As we look to the future and the tools of technology integrating into our lives, this video, from the discovery channel, is a ‘Futurist” piece that peers into the looking glass of the next 50 years. I thought that this series was terrific believe that it aired last year (summer 2007).
