The 165-year reign of oil is coming to an end. But will we ever be able to live without it?

Between the 17th and 20th centuries, humans killed millions of whales for oil. They stripped their blubber, spinning the iconic creatures in the water and pulling off the fat in a huge spiral like the peel of an apple.
