Qataris looking to the sun for energy

Campaigner suggests using solar panels to power desert camps and parts of Gulf country's urban areas.

    The Gulf is home to two-thirds of the world's oil reserves, but alternative energy campaigners warn that those will not last forever.

    In Qatar, one such campaigner argues that the country should turn towards the sun to meet future energy needs.
