Fossil and mineral resources are not only finite, they also fuel wars. But is this just realpolitik? If there is going to be an alternative - whether renewable energy or the much-trumpeted hydrogen fuel cells - when is it actually going to happen? What are the real costs - local and global - of our dependence on carbon? Is Britain stuck in the Oil Age - or is it ready to capitalise on the coming clean energy revolution? Speakers: Jay Bhutani, global energy analyst, Credit Suisse Asset Management; John Mogford, Group Vice President for Renewables at BP; Michael Grubb, Associated Director of Policy at The Carbon Trust, which aims to help business and the public sector to reduce carbon emissions; and Vijay Vaitheeswaran, Global Environment and Energy correspondent at The Economist. Chair: Pallab Ghosh, Science Correspondent BBC News.
