This is funny. The guy should have just asked for it or something. Well, at least we know that rising oil prices is causing folks to consider biofuels. (May 5, 2011 | post #2)
Algal-based biofuels has been in the news for a while. The US military has had several successful tests using it in jets. What's great about algae is that it doesn't compete with land, unlike crop-based biofuels and it can use waste water instead of fresh water. (May 5, 2011 | post #2)
Good to hear someone's doing something about big bad coal. Really hope all of Google's efforts will have the desired effect of making renewables cost-effective. (May 3, 2011 | post #2)
How can nuclear be safe? Can the latest technology prevent toxic waste and radiation from escaping in case nature decides to rock us with another devastating earthquake? (Apr 28, 2011 | post #2)
I suppose any decrease in emissions is good news. (Apr 28, 2011 | post #3)
I agree completely. This shouldn't be a point taken against wind but on the company that failed to do their job well. (Apr 26, 2011 | post #2767)
It's a sad fact really... and all in the name of profit. (Apr 26, 2011 | post #3)
I agree. People should conserve more, that's the other solution. We're so caught up in the supply side of fossil fuels that we forget that taking a walk, car pooling or planning weekly trips can help reduce our oil use. (Apr 26, 2011 | post #24)
Probably not, which is why the government will probably need to keep subsidizing renewables. (Apr 25, 2011 | post #6)
This is definitely a good way of making use of capped landfills. (Apr 21, 2011 | post #2)
RE has many unintended consequences. What's important here is to continue with biofuels that do not divert food crops and crop lands. The government should put an emphasis on non-crop sources or algae. (Apr 21, 2011 | post #3)
While it's true that nuclear power does supply the world with energy but we should slowly move away from it. If nature decides to unleash its wrath upon us, I'm not sure the best designed and most hi-tech nuclear plants stand a chance. (Apr 21, 2011 | post #3)
