  • The Energy Blog is where all topics relating to The Energy Revolution are presented. Increasingly, expensive oil, coal and global warming are causing an energy revolution by requiring fossil fuels to be supplemented by alternative energy sources and by requiring changes in lifestyle.

GreyFlcn,

The term "on board" was meant literally, not figuratively. Graham Cowan was referring to Greenpeace activists Lonnie Dupre's and Eric Larsen's having literally allowed themselves to be rescued in July of 2006 by the nuclear-powered icebreaker Jamal.

More on that incident is here:

If we get in trouble, we have to rely on helicopters or Russian Icebreakers.


Here is a short write-up with photos of the anti-nuclear-organization-representing explorers, and the nuclear-powered ship that rescued them.

GOT TO BE BETTER THAN WOOD FIRED POWER STATIONS LIKE THE ONES IN MALYASSIA, AND SOON AUSTRAILIA... THE HOWARD GOVERNMENT IS GETTING A MALASIAN FIRM TO BUILD THEM A WOOD FUELED POWER STATION RIGHT ON THE EDGE OF OLD GROWTH RAIN FOREST... wHAT IS GOIN ON IN THIS WORLD??? CHECK OUT HOW U CAN HELP BY VISETIN GOUR MYSPACE AND WATCHING Howards broken promise ... TA.

I have not seen a biomass plant that I did not like because they generally burned waste wood and made the local environment better.

Geothermal is great if you can get to it. All we here "EVER" is *potential*. There is a reason geothermal is not widely used. Because it is hard to get too, hard to process the steam and numerous other costs and expensese.

Current world-wide geo sites tap *existing steam reservoirs*. Injection of condensed steam is ony a hypothesis as to it's return as steam. Thus, existing geo sites run by PG&E and Calpines in California are *losing their steam packs* and reducing generation: they don't know where the steam comes from.

"Hotrocks" is simply unproven and costs are unknown. Even though I'm very pro-nuclear, I'm FOR continuing exploring the Hot/dry rocks method. But don't hold your breadth...
"potential".

Can I make solar panels at home from materials I order. Green Energy offers for 39.95$ material and info to order and build solar panels for 200$ per panel and 200$ for a wind turbine. What is the cost of materilals wholesale to a manufacturer of solar panels. We always speak of the retail costs. -Sean

i am so glad to hear this.

i am sure about this type of power. is it cheaper.

I think it is fantastic how the stimulus funds are making a difference. They are being taken advantage of all the time with the installation of geothermal heat pumps to replace high energy heating and cooling systems.

Thats a great article. Thanks for sharing.

Geothermal power is cost effective, reliable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly, but has historically been limited to areas near tectonic plate boundaries. Recent technological advances have dramatically expanded the range and size of viable resources, especially for applications such as home heating, opening a potential for widespread exploitation. Geothermal wells release greenhouse gases trapped deep within the earth, but these emissions are much lower per energy unit than those of fossil fuels. As a result, geothermal power has the potential to help mitigate global warming if widely deployed in place of fossil fuels.

Hi there, i was just passing by to your post and found it informative. Thanks for this post.

We must keep in mind about the safety issues. This is much more useful than using nuclear methods..

That's very interesting I got to read. Thank you for sharing.

I too agree with the point that Nuclear power is generally accepted as 100 times safer than other sources of electricity.
