Welcome to the Energy Blog


  • 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. Please contact me with your comments and questions. Further Information about me can be found HERE.

BILL HANNAHAN

It is interesting that the League of Conservation Voters left the two most important questions off their survey.

1 What would your R&D budget be for non fossil energy sources and how would you divide it up?

2 What is your position on nuclear power?

Kit P

Bill, LCV is a one environment issue pony namely AGW. LCV is made up of anti-nuke scaremongering organizations who are not going to ask any hard questions that would reveal dems as totally lacking any leadership on energy.

Chris Hansen

I haven't looked at the League of Conservation Voters' report yet, but according to your post Chris Dodd is not considered by them to be one of the "major candidates." That's too bad, because I think his proposed energy policy is the best thought out. I'm saying I'm endorsing him, but I have been impressed with what he has to say in regards to energy. You can see how I laid it out a few weeks ago at http://marketgreener.com/blog/2007/10/31/democrats-energy-policies/

Sam

LCV is a biased anti nuke organization.
Rudy Giuliani has the best energy policy ny far, with second place going to Romney and Huckabee. Giuliani understands that energy independence is a national security issue and takes American energy independence very seriously. He is pro BTL,CTL,Bio-fuels, PHEV's and EV's. He's pro nuclear power and pro solar and wind and solar thermal and hydroelectric and geo thermal and conservation. He supports all options and technologies to make America energy independent. Not one of the democrats take energy independence seriously!

All this energy legislation and the dollars expended in its execution will result only in wasted dollars and time.
To save planet Earth from environmental, political, and economic disaster we must immediately direct all of our resources to the development of the Hydrogen economy.

Jules

Sorry Norm, the Hydrogen economy is a non-starter. Number one: It would take too long to implement a hydrogen economy infrastructure. Second: where do you plan on getting the hydrogen from? Fossil Fuels? Bzzzt... wrong answer. Electrolysis of water? Interesting... but still needs quite a lot of energy to split the water. In that case, the hydrogen is an energy carrier, not an energy source. Then there's the problem of distributing the hydrogen. The infrastructure, particularly for transportation fuels, would take too long to build. Hydrogen might ... possibly ... barely have an application for onsite energy storage for large PV installations, but even there it's questionable. Advances in batteries and supercap technology will soon make even that application obsolete.

There are a few interesting schemes floating around that involve various chemical and catalytic means to generate hydrogen at the point of use, using water as a feedstock. But... the "catalyst" chemicals involved get used up and need to be replaced. They also require energy to manufacture, so no free lunch. I suppose a network of fuel stations with swappable cartridges of chemicals could be implemented, but PHEV's and EV's already have a commanding lead when it comes to infrastructure. They are the odds on favorites. I'm sure some bright person could come up with a workable hydrogen system eventually, but the window of opportunity for a hydrogen economy has already passed. So sorry...

Nathan

From my brief examination, there is little merit to this website. The 5 issues they list in order to briefly articulate the candidates views are hardly representative of an intelligent energy policy.

I would really like to see a candidate propose a carbon or btu tax.

Curious 9th grader

What are the canidates saying about energy?

Kit P

“What are the canidates saying about energy?”

It depends on where and when they are speaking. In Iowa, all candidates are for ethanol. During the primary, all democrats are against nuclear power.

R. Keith Rugg

Where you stand depends upon where you sit, as the old political saw goes. To say that McCain and Romney are weak on energy policy, and that Giuliani has not articulated a policy says more about the LCV than it does about the candidates. Check out www.ruggsoutfitting.info for news and overviews of the candidates' policies on alternative energy.

If there are no problems, no solution is necessary. When it comes to the payday loan industry and the valuable assistance that they provide, there aren’t very many problems, if any at all. Many customers have nothing but good things to say, due to the fact that, if used properly, these loans provide a valuable service, and help a person out when they are in trouble. However, many of the people in high places don’t see the value behind short term loans, and want to fix what isn’t broken. Some bipartisan fronts have outlawed the industry outright in several states, and even candidate Barack Obama wants to take a shot as well. We aren’t going to tell you how to vote, but remember that you have to make the right choice for the people’s right to financial independence.

Jason,
You can discover what Steven Carew "has got" by visiting wholesale the website for Rhino Hydro. There are a few "update" items there, dated 2004.

But, the essence of Steve's invention is described under the "technical" menu selection, as follows:

"This electro generating plant employs magnets and springs to help create a perpetual motion which hiphone drives a generator. Thus giving you the electricity you need."

Get the picture, Jason? Hard to imagine Steve can't get funding . . .2945abc45 0422
