Walter Cicha, a chemist at the National Research Council Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information, says the Manhattan Project is a bad model since the subsequent bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki meant many people died as a result.But the technological achievement was astounding and, conceptually, exactly what is needed, he says."In the history of mankind, no country has ever done that, what they did in three years," Cicha said.Similarly, Cicha and others believe preventing climate change is a matter of life and death."These programs are extremely expensive," says Cicha, a consultant on fuel cells and other innovative clean-energy technologies.And then the question one has to ask is, 'What are we going to do?'â€"Walter Cicha All sides in this complex debate agree the need to begin the shift is urgent.Cicha goes further.He warns that unless we begin now, we might find we can't begin at all.Technology requires materials: platinum for fuel cells; uranium for nuclear; silicon for solar; oil, gas or coal to power the manufacturing of new technologies.And prices of many materials have doubled, tripled, quadrupled or more in the last few years."If energy doubles in price one more time, I don't think we're going to be developing those technologies," says Cicha.
