Afghanistan may be the graveyard of empires, but Iraq is home to a graveyard sense of humor. Iraqis wonder aloud whether the U.S. and Britain would have invaded Iraq if its main export had been cabbages instead of oil.
“By the end of the year 2012,” Tucker told Jones, “they (the Bilderbergers and the elite) want us paying $7 a gallon for gasoline… what they want to do is bring the American standard of living down to the standard of the so-called third world…
Researchers have developed a platinum-free catalyst in cathode of hydrogen fuel cell that uses carbon, iron and cobalt. That could make the catalysts “two to three orders of magnitude cheaper,” thereby significantly reducing the cost of fuel cells.
Why become energy self-sufficient? The Saudis, our "friends," just gave us the perfect reason! Although it would take some time, the United States could become somewhat energy self-sufficient. The naysayers to that fact will tell you that we nee
Startup company SiEnergy Systems has overcome a major barrier to commercializing solid-oxide fuel cells with a prototype that operates at temperatures hundreds of degrees lower than those on the market today.
With gas prices now standing at about $3.90 a gallon, energy costs have now passed 6 percent of spending—a level that Johnson says is a "tipping point" for consumers.
China has become the single largest driver for global wind power development. In 2010, every second wind turbine that was added anywhere in the world was installed in China.” said Steve Sawyer, GWEC’s Secretary General.
"If you get weakness in the dollar concurrent with the strong driving season concurrent with the impact of one or two hurricanes in the wrong place, prices could go up in a quasi-exponential manner."
One of the major barriers between solar energy and solar-derived electricity is solar cells themselves--commercial solar cells aren’t very efficient at converting sunlight to electricity, but they are the best thing we’ve got.
Nuclear waste pools are packed more densely in the U.S. than those at Fukushima, with no removal plan in sight.
Its close to the point where consumers say they will have to start cut back to pay their fuel expenses. This could adversely affect restaurants, malls, and entertainment venues that count on people driving to get there.
America's most beleaguered city, San Diego, pays a shocking $5.05 per gallon.
The U.S. Export-Import Bank, an independent agency of the federal government, is now planning a $2.84-billion loan for a massive project to expand and upgrade an oil refinery–in Cartagena, Colombia.
Capitalism always seeks to exploit the worker and is always expansive. Wars are always those of exploitation.
That's one big battery. Such technology is likely to become crucial as wind farms become ever larger but erratic suppliers of electricity to the grid. In wind-blown West Texas, the region's massive turbine farms can generate more electricity than t
Huge oil and financial deals play major part in Beijing's support for Libya's despot and halt to foreign intervention.
hristiansen describes how green rust is able to, so to say, encapsulate and contain neptunium. It's an insight that can greatly influence how and where to dispose of radioactive waste
One only has to read the strategic briefings in U.S. AFRICOM documents to realise the true endgame in Libya: the control of valuable resources and the eviction of China from North Africa.
Saudi Arabia's oil minister said on Sunday the kingdom had slashed output by 800,000 barrels per day in March due to oversupply, sending the strongest signal yet that OPEC will not act to quell soaring prices.
In my opinion, what is going on is comparable to what the US and Britain did to Japan in the 1930s. When they cut Japan off from oil, from rubber, from minerals like ore; that was the origin of World War II in the pacific.
uses a GE Mark I Boiling Water reactor identical to those that lost power at Japan's Fukushima plant in the March 11 earthquake and then was struck by a tsunami that knocked out its backup generators, causing reactor cooling functions to fail. U
If the denomination of oil sales changes to another currency, such as the euro, many countries would sell dollars and cause the banks to shift their reserves, as they would no longer need dollars to buy oil. Forty years of petrodollars would start...
Their results are the strongest evidence yet that the pseudogap phase, a mysterious electronic state peculiar to high-temperature superconductors, is not a gradual transition to superconductivity in these materials, as many have long believed.
Bloom Energy (although debatably greentech) is a high-profile fuel cell manufacturer, and the firm is using all of the tools at its disposal — including, in this case, California’s SGIP subsidy – to advance its business.
Doing 190.6 mph is amazing under any circumstances. It is even more so when it’s done on an electric motorcycle.
Does the company have the money and connections needed to break into such a competitive industry?
Pilot program in Boston part of home audit scheme to encourage compliance with green energy standards, drive business.
Just last month, GreenFire Energy began work to demonstrate a process that would use CO2 to harness geothermal energy to make electricity. What is more, the technology has the potential to add carbon sequestration – not to mention reduced water consu
Gasoline prices are soaring toward $4 a gallon, that will damage the fragile economic recovery and crimp consumer spending just as families are planning their summer vacations. Higher prices saddle businesses with higher transportation costs, causing
Oil profiteers are on the loose. The nation must be immunized from the scourge of artificially transmitted oil panic based on war-simulated hoarding to create a short supply contagion. On the rescue are lamp-writers who switched the light of knowledg
