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.

It took more than 350 experts 18 months to figure this stuff out. Hilarious.

Still, this is a good hatstand for further, more specialised studies.


If you read the reports carefully, it's a very anti-CO2, pro carbon fuels (oil, gas, coal) document. Further, it cites not opportunities for this industry to improve its environmental impact even though it acknowledges CO2 as at least a "concern". It's a deceptively coercive document that is critical of legislation that impacts the oil and gas industry.


What a worthless study. It must have been funded by tax money.

NPC is privately funded and this 422 page draft study is a wealth of information. Some may not like the reality. For example, fossil fuel is projected to increase in the energy mix while nuclear and renewable energy may increase in absolute terms they decrease in relative terms.

Spend some time looking at US LNG import projections (figure s3b-14). If a have a quibble with the study, I think nuclear and renewable energy additions will reduce LNG and not coal.


It's important to keep the scope of this study in mind. Only up to 2030; the greatest push towards non-carbon energy sources will occur after 2030.

However, perhaps the hardest truth to face is that this study was done by the national petroleum council.

So I would like to add another "core strategy": Take the industry's own research with a grain of salt.

That doesn't mean this research is useless.


Globally, reserves of non-renewable sources of energy such as coal, oil and natural gas are declining drastically. Calculated by the proven reserves and the speed of consumption, petroleum, the main source of energy in the world, will be exhausted in 40 to 50 years. By that time, the energy crisis will become a major threat to the world. In the meantime, the sustainable development of human society demands coordination between energy development and environmental protection and ecological balance. Therefore, many countries are actively developing clean and renewable sources of energy, and solar energy is a typical one.
AC-solarheater is a company engaged in helping the American buyer to buy solar energy products such as the solar water heater,etc..
AC-solarheater can guarantee the lowest price in the market. Meanwhile,we can also customize and process the water heater at the request according to the needs of American company.

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

Great, practical and much needed advice.


Photobioreactors are most commonly computer controlled by well qualified professionals and experts. It automatically regulates inlet gas mixture and online analysis of the exhaust gas by a chromatograph. By utilizing this system, it is easier and more accurately possible to investigate and optimize hydrogen production process of the wild-type and genetically engineered cyanobacteria and sulphur derived green algae biomass.
