Coal prices have plunged to their lowest level in four years. Continue Reading This Post
Question by Jesse: Are solar panels the best way to get electricity without harming the environment?
I have a project and im in grade nine the project is about saving electricity. We had many choices to choose from wind,hydro, solar, geothermal, nuclear and solar. I choose solar but now im wondering if i made the right decision. We have to design a poster talking about how it works and is it the BEST
way to get electricity without harming the environment ? HELP ANYONE?
Answer by ʝe ne sais pas♥ Wind is also good. It depends on the weather where you live.
Question by l♥ve lockdown!: What are other environmentally friendly alternative energy sources?
other than solar panels and turbines, what are other energy sources? what are the pros and cons to it? THANKS AND 10 POINTS FOR BEST ANSWER I SWEAR
also, what are the pros and cons to turbines?
Answer by elprez33 Geothermal doesn’t have a major effect on environment. Nuclear energy, even though it is feared, is more environmentally friendly than our present coal burning facilities. There have been leaps and bounds in technology and safety for nuclear power plants.

Question by fineDayguy: About this oil spill. If the Obama administration is such a green group, wanting to protect the environment ..?
… why has Obama done nothing to contain this oil spill? It has been close to 2 weeks since the rig exploded and sunk and now the oil is washing up on shore in Louisiana killing birds and fish and other wildlife. You would think Obama would have been right on top of this, getting some navy boats out there skimming the oil or something. But so far nothing. Is he in actuality a corporate crony president?

PNoy in search of clean energy, opens Sibulan power plant
President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III on Thursday said the government is studying how to develop more alternative energy sources and has not closed the door to nuclear power as a remedy to the country’s energy woes. Read more on GMANews.TV via Yahoo! Philippines News
Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative energy in the world. More and more, wind power mills are seen in the countryside, in large wind farms and for the most part, away from city life. But a new form of wind power is now designed to work in an urban environment. VOA producer Zulima Palacio has the story. Mill Arcega narrates. Video Rating: 4 / 5
CBS Sunday Morning did a piece on west Texas and their Wind Turbines
Oil Rig terrorist attack known by Obama being keep quiet.
The Muslin(s) working on the big rig may have caused the blast. The Obama Regime is putting a lid on it with silence. The truth will leak out, but not until the damage is done and the dems can use the spill to stop oil production off our Gulf Coast. There seems to be no end to the conspiracies
I know we should all play our part in conserving water and electricity but how does it affect our environment? can someone give me a summary so i can help others around me understand why they should play their role too?
I have a debate coming up about the Wolfe Island Wind Turbine Project (The second largest wind farm in Canada). The debate is whether or not the Wolfe Island Wind Project, as well as wind turbines in general, are beneficial to the environment or not.
I know there are the simple answers that wind power is renewable and that it doesn’t generate any pollution (except in production it does). What I am looking for (without much success) are the BIG reasons why wind turbines overall benefit the environment (looking at environmental, economical, social reasons, possibly compared to other types of energy). Can anyone help? Links to websites would be awesome as well.
EarthSure, a renewable energy company and innovator in alternative energy sources announces the latest patent-pending renewable energy invention. Solar Alternative Functioning Energy (SAFE) Fencing System, is an earth-friendly fencing configuration made out of recycled PVC that not only protects the owners property, it also collects the suns rays and transforms them into renewable energy! This unique invention combines the functionality of a perimeter fencing system with a unique solar panel system built inside the inner walls of the fence. As the sun rises, the sunlight is collected by a series of optical lenses that transmit the light to solar panels which is then transformed into free, clean, renewable energy. This is then inverted into the electric meter of the home, office, or commercial building. This system reduces the electric bill and helps eliminate the publics dependence on carbon based fuels.

Nuclear energy will run out if it continues to be produced using uranium and nuclear fission. If people can harness the power of nuclear fusion though, the supply of hydrogen required is virtually endless.
