Al Gore's Inconvenient Plan - "Al Gore said that the United States should produce all of its electricity from carbon-free, renewable energy within 10 years. Although he didn't lay out specifics, he seems to want to do it with wind, solar, and geothermal, although it's not clear from his speech whether nuclear would be acceptable. Can it be done? It isn't likely." (MIT Technology Review July 18, 2008)

Extra, Extra

Wind, water and sun beat other energy alternatives, study finds - The raw energy sources that Mark Z. Jacobson, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford, found to be the most promising are, in order Wind, Concentrated Solar (the use of mirrors to heat a fluid), Geothermal, Tidal, Solar Photovoltaics (rooftop solar panels), Wave and Hydroelectric. The published review is in Energy & Environmental Science. Slashdot discussion (Stanford News Service Dec. 10, 2008)

African Renewable Energy Gains Attention - Sub-Saharan Africa could provide more than 170 gigawatts of additional power-generation capacity - more than double the region's current installations - through 3,200 "low-carbon" energy projects, such as combined heat-and-power, biofuels production, mass transportation, and energy efficiency, according to the World Bank report. (WorldWatch Institute Sept. 10, 2008)

The Elephant Under the Rug: Denial and Failed Energy Projects - U.S. energy policy has developed delusions where people are still getting rich pursuing failed projects that should have been abandoned years ago. Saving face and saving contracts has made denial the order of the day. Billions in subsidy money, finance a war chest for lobbying that keeps these programs alive. (Renewable Energy World Sept. 2, 2008)

Image:Sarah Palin 95x95.jpg

Palin on CNBC: Energy, Public Service and Role of VP - Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said “Alaska should be the head, not the tail in Energy Policy. It is time to ramp up American supply of energy up in the arctic in Alaska. We have trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and billions of barrels of oil still sitting underground." (CNBC Aug 29, 2008)

Beaver aims to be 'renewable capital of Utah' - "There's a lot going on out there," said Jason Berry, the renewable energy coordinator with Utah Geological Survey. "There's a lot of leased land for geothermal development and a lot of prospecting [for wind and hot water] by companies interested in the state." Beaver County is fast becoming a convergence point for companies wanting to harness renewable forms of energy like geothermal wells or the persistent wind. (Salt Lake Tribune Nov. 28, 2008)
