The Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ), a name not without irony, was initiated by a 10 million dollar grant from the Department of Energy (DOE). In December of 2009, plans were expanded when Secretary Chu joined Jon Wellinghoff of the Federal
A few days ago, 98 percent of Southern Sudan voted for independence from the North. This is an offshoot of the 2005 Bush sponsored peace treaty, which will be effective on July 9, 2011. Sudan is the largest country in Africa and has suffered throu
In plain words: alternative energy won’t cut it when oil runs out by mid century. It will become prohibitively expensive long before 2050.
While he will certainly not be solely responsible for the proverbial axe that has the potential to fall on the United States, President Obama is sticking in the knife and twisting it! Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer is a phras
In what can be the "Holy Grail" moment for the peak oil movement, Wikileaks has just released 4 cables that may confirm that as broadly speculated by the peak oil "fringe", the theories about an imminent crude crunch may be in fact true. As the G
Giving more momentum to anti Mubarak protests in Egypt, thousands of Suez Canal service workers began an indefinite strike threatening crude oil supply disruptions.
The US fears that Saudi Arabia, the world's largest crude oil exporter, may not have enough reserves to prevent oil prices escalating. The kingdom's crude oil reserves may have been overstated by as much as 300bn barrels – nearly 40%.
A newly engineered yeast strain can simultaneously consume two types of sugar from plants to produce ethanol, researchers report. The sugars are glucose, a six-carbon sugar that is relatively easy to ferment; and xylose, a five-carbon sugar that has
As the Guardian reports on 4 just declassified cables, "The US fears that Saudi Arabia, the world's largest crude oil exporter, may not have enough reserves to prevent oil prices escalating, confidential cables from its embassy in Riyadh show.
A new bridge concept incorporates wind and solar energy into its design, generating 40 million kilowatt-hours per year — and looking pretty slick to boot.
Eric Jacqmain, from Indiana in the US, covered an ordinary fibreglass satellite dish with 5,800 tiny mirror tiles - and made his very own 'death ray'.
Andrea Rossi has announced that he has a commercial ready cold fusion reactor that is safe and reliable, capable of producing 10 kW of heat; and is in process of going into production, with a 1 MW plant being built ganging 125 of these units together
Two Italian scientists—Andrea Rossi and Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna—announced to skeptical colleagues a week ago that they successfully developed a new cold fusion process. They claimed the ability to create 12,400 watts of thermal po
VW is calling the XL1 is the most efficient car in the world. This is achieved through a combination of lightweight construction using monocoque and add-on parts made of carbon fiber, very low aerodynamic drag (Cd 0.186) and a plug-in hybrid system..
Amidst rising fears of a return to the devastating 1970s "stagflation" economy and an increasing dearth of resources, the UK has moved to a series of rationing plans. The first such draconian plan affected the British National Health Service late i
According to PhysOrg.com, two Italian scientists from the University of Bologna have taken on one of physics' historically most discredited concepts, cold fusion, and have actually succeeded in creating a sustainable reaction.
Wall Street is warming up to oil stocks again.
This can't be good...
It's amazing how a little publicity and $90-a-barrel oil can help a stock go from "bad to less bad."
Last summer, I told Growth Stock Wire readers about a new oil and gas field in south Texas called the Eagle Ford Shale.
As I expected back in July, the price of insurance is getting more expensive these days...
In a bold plan to bring clean, dependable energy to remote coastal communities, the government of France has given the green light to an innovative nuclear power program. France revealed its new nuclear policy on January 20, 2011. The French company,
Jim Rogers: Justin, the price of oil is going to make new highs. It will go over $150 a barrel. It will probably go over $200 a barrel.
we suddenly have a configuration that exploits the phenomena and in fact produces a massive amount of heat. The clear existence of gamma rays supports a nuclear process of some sort that we have been unable to define, not least because the actual ev
A new study claims that 100 percent renewable energy can be achieved in America by 2030. No new technology needs to be created, claims Mark Delucchi, one of the authors of the study appearing in the journal Energy Policy. According to the data the te
In 2007, the U.S. Congress passed the Energy Independence and Security Act which contains a subsection that bans the sale of incandescent light bulbs beginning in 2012.
Robert Pretcher is disgusted. The Yale University graduate, New York Times bestselling author, and top market guru has proclaimed, "Oil should fall to between $4 and $10 a barrel based on a technical analysis called Elliott Wave principle." The Ell
Rossi and Focardi say that, when the atomic nuclei of nickel and hydrogen are fused in their reactor, the reaction produces copper and a large amount of energy. The reactor uses less than 1 gram of hydrogen and starts with about 1,000 Watts.
World-revered trends research expert says: "We're going to see ... an energy revolution. ...We're going to be releasing more information in Trends Journal about breakthroughs in new energy that could shift the whole game. It may be as big as the disc
