Once we run out of fossil fuels, we will be left to find alternative forms of energy resources. Kerfoot explained that although we still have oil to use, we should start searching for viable alternatives to oil so when the time comes, we are properly prepared. He talked about how solar and wind power technology is ever advancing and it could be developed to be used in vehicles, and houses everywhere. Lastly, he talked about his stance on climate change and the impact it’s had over the last several years.
