Well, there's always the option of climbing back to the trees.
One thing, though, about this subject is that, although there are so many people trying to find new energy sources for the benefit of the mankind (and to make themselves rich), there are things we could still learn from our past generations. One viable energy source, in particular, has been something that I have been interested in for a long time: wood gas. Here, in Finland, we used to run our trucks and buses on wood gas during the WWII, when we had the obvious reasons to give our armed troops a fighting chance against the soviets. Since then, it seems that the existence of this renewable energy source has been forgotten.
