Paintless Car Saves Energy
September 3, 2008 08:55 AM - , Private Landowner Network

Energy can be saved in surprising places, but let’s meander a bit first If you own a new car, built in the last decade or so, take look around the wheel wells or perhaps the door sills. You might see pieces of clear plastic film adhered to the bodywork.

McCain and Obama: Green Energy on Their Side
June 10, 2008 10:37 AM - , Private Landowner Network

Whether it’s John McCain or Barack Obama who moves into the Oval Office next January he’ll have have a deskfull of problems to cope with: the biggest foreign policy blunder in the nation’s history, a lackluster economy, and what appears to be a peaking of the world’s oil supply.

Solar Hot Water on the Cheap
May 6, 2008 10:02 AM - , Private Landowner Network

There’s a downside to nearly all renewable energy technologies available for homeowners. Cost. Though over time a solar power or small wind system may pay for itself in savings from not buying fuels or power from the grid, the initial outlay for renewable energy is staggering for mere mortals. Despite the wisdom of a penny saved is a penny earned, most Americans consider sales price first, long term savings last. However simple, low tech, clever products or affordable high tech plug and play technologies may be the key to bringing renewable energy into the home.

USEFUL, SALABLE PRODUCTS FROM CO2

Someday soon, probably sooner than we think, we’ll have to get serious about removing carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plant exhaust, perhaps even extracting it from the atmosphere as well. The Arctic ice cap is shrinking in area and thickness. Another state-sized ice shelf is breaking away from Antarctica as this story is being written. Global warming is blamed for the dramatic changes going on at the extremes of the planet — our home.

Tibet's Lithium
March 25, 2008 09:38 AM - , Private Landowner Network

As of the end of 2005 there were something like 2 billion cell phones in service worldwide. Certainly there are more than that now. Without lithium batteries cell phones would be a completely different animal. Bigger and heavier, you wouldn’t be stuffing one into a pant’s pocket. Now that the standard is set the cell phone industry is reliant on lithium for its existence.

Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), at their core, create an opportunity for anyone to purchase, or make a contribution to, electricity generated from renewable sources whether or not the electricity is generated in their service area or the power grid their home or business is connected to. RECs are also intended to be a source of funding for the construction of renewable energy projects. RECs, when invented, were meant to help lower the cost of renewable energy thus be an encouragement to build more capacity.

The all-electric Subaru R1e to be tested in NYC
March 18, 2008 09:23 AM - , Private Landowner Network

Technologically we could build solar power plants so expansive, covering such a large area, that they could be seen from space. But we don’t have to. We could plaster the world’s deserts with solar photovoltaic or concentrated solar thermal power plants to provide many times the amount of power needed to run the world’s economies. But we don’t have to turn the world’s deserts into energy-generating industrial sites. Large scale solar power plants can be built anywhere where sun-drenched real estate is affordable.

Green Energy Could Avoid Recession.
March 17, 2008 09:41 AM - , Private Landowner Network

So far the industry sector that includes clean, renewable and efficient energy has been holding up well under continuing bad news from just about every other segment of the US economy. Green energy stands out as a bright spot in an otherwise cloudy economic picture. There’s a long list of good reasons for the strength of green

HIGH PRICED CRUDE : SCOUNDREL OR SAVIOR?
March 12, 2008 10:09 PM - , Private Landowner Network

It’s not just the subprime mortgage market that’s damaging the US, and perhaps global economies. It’s the relentless rise in the price of oil. And, $100 plus oil may be more the result of speculative greed than fundamentals like tight supplies or demand from growing nations. But there’s a bright side: High prices at the pump could force more drivers to conserve, to drive something less thirsty or shift away from petroleum altogether. High priced oil could help save the planet.
