ABSTRACT
The author talks about the potential limitations of fossil fuels as a source of energy. Elected officials in high office are not worried about tomorrow's supply of fossil fuels because of the abundance that exist today. This is despite the considerable documentation of warnings about the limited supply of fossil fuels including many interesting comments and statements. Among early conservationists include U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, who called for a conference of the various state governors for the purpose of discussing federal and state cooperation in the development of natural resources.
