We are running out of helium - New Scientist

According to a nobel prize winner, we will run out of helium in 25 years. That is shocking, I never realised that helium wasn't produced in abundance by some industrial process. Apparently, there is no chemical means to make helium and the supplies we have come from radioactive alpha decay in rocks.
