We can change the lifeblood of our economy from oil to ingenuity. It is that way in communications. It was that way with transportation. Open rights of way to innovation. Ingenuity will flourish or fail based on the value created minus the cost to compete.

China's Solar Energy Industry: Polysilicon 2007-2011

China's 2005 Renewable Energy Law called for the country to increase its renewable energy consumption to 10 percent of the total by 2020. Without sufficient supply of domestic polysilicon, this goal, as well as solar cell export goals, will be difficult to meet.

Cultured Micro-Algae Produces Omega-3 Bio-Lipid Oil

Bio-Lipid oil can also be used to produce one of the lowest cost and most environmentally friendly fuels known to man: bio-diesel. Bio-diesel made from bio-lipid oil, from micro-algae, burns cleaner, produces less CO2 (with no sulfur dioxide emissions) than petroleum based diesel fuels, and it's renewable and sustainable.
