Is there Any Intelligent Life out there?



Today down sunny Florida I noticed gasoline prices were closing in from below to $3.00 a gallon. It’s $2.83 for a gallon of

Regular. So here we are climbing out from the most recent financial

collapse, and things are apparently getting better, as I for one do

believe that things are getting better. This is not to say however, that

Most Barnett Shale facilities release emissions

Hundreds of pages of documents obtained by The News under federal and state open-records laws, plus other reports and studies, reveal a

pattern of emissions of toxic compounds, often including

cancer-causing benzene, from Barnett Shale facilities.

Researchers harness viruses to split water: Crucial step toward turning water into Hydrogen fuel

A team of MIT researchers has found a novel way to mimic the process by which plants use the power of sunlight to split water and make chemical fuel to power their growth. In this case, the team used a modified virus as a kind of biological scaffold that can assemble the nanoscale components needed to split a water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Splitting is one way to solve the basic problem of solar… Continue

Got a few minutes?

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be an optimistic appraisal of the future or a frightening one but now that someone has given the vision form and shape someone will try to make it real.

Oil Could Give Kiss of Death to Recovery

This week oil climbed to $87 a barrel, its highest level since October 2008 and prompted concerns that triple-digit crude was once again in the offing.

This was after a period of eight months when oil traded between $70 and $80, a narrow band that pleased oil producers without hurting consumers too much.

The latest surge seems to have been prompted by rising…

We need to change the tone of the conversation - www.REepedia.com is doing just that

For a little over 1-year now I have been reviewing all of the various comments, blogs and reports regarding the renewable and clean energy discussion. Anyone that is truly interested in advancing the use of alternative energies needs to understand that it can actually happen if and only if, they start appealing to individual’s “common sense”.

When spoken about from a Political tone or even from a Social and Environmental voice, people tend not to want to listen. The fact is most people… Continue
