Will The Natural Gas Boom Undercut Renewable Energy?

Before we all jump on the Nat Gas Bandwagon, we had better listen to the actual experiences of people who have experienced drilling first hand. We ignore these at our peril.

Cheap Energy Comes at High “Hidden” Cost

U.S. consumers pay much less for their energy, per kilowatt, than consumers in most industrialized nations. Yet electricity and fuel prices typically fail to reflect the full cost of energy production and consumption, especially in terms of health effects.

The U.S. Congress requested a clarification of "hidden" energy costs as part of its 2005 energy bill. The result, released on Monday, concluded that the external effects of burning fossil fuels cost the United States more than $120… Continue

Algae Biofuel

What can replace fossil fuels in our motors? Algae Biofuel. I'm going to explain how this proven and renewable energy source, which we can grow in our own country, can solve some of the problems we face with energy, pollution, environment, health and economy. What's keeping us from growing our own fuels? Currently, we don't have the farms constructed to grow the algae and, fossil fuels have been cheap enough to keep us from converting. Now that petroleum fuel has lost some of its affordability,… Continue

No time or patience for pork barreling

This post was motivated by reading another PickMember blog talking about the ERA bill, which I am not familiar with, but here are my comments.



IMHO – The American people should be speaking out on anything buried in any initiative that is not 100% renewable and (in my personal opinion) 100% zero carbon and zero toxin.



We don’t need coal liquefication processes, or the support of nuclear. Nuclear especially is just creating a new problem. Has anyone read the news about the… Continue
