I would like to point towards one combination of existing technology that I am convinced could actually do the job of lowering atmospheric carbon concentrations and thus reverse climate change
Using natural gas to produce oil from tar sands is akin to turning gold into lead.
We are being marginalized, patronized and ignored by our current energy policies. We're not being encouraged, or even invited, to participate individually in the solution to the problem. I feel that it's incumbent upon each of us to "plant our own renewable energy ‘Victory Gardens'".
"Tennessee Valley Authority does away with solar subsidy." Would any businessman who knew that his obsolescence was imminent not do likewise?
Few people realize what a huge impact several hundred thousand solar water heaters can have on a country's energy demand. Thermal solar (heating water) is a sensible and efficient way to avoid the expense and potential danger of nuclear plants. Hot water is always needed and solar energy is the best method to meet those demands. Since thermal solar heats our oceans, isn't it about time we utilize the proven technology of solar water heaters?
Of course, the situation for each business is different but considering renewable energy resources as part of a comprehensive disaster plan should also be part of the discussion.
Interdisciplinary cooperation of specialists from engineering, natural sciences, economics and humanities have now become as self-evident for large dam projects, especially those with considerable use of hydro power, as have public relations and awareness raising with the broad population.
We use about 128,640 horsepower-hours, or the equivalent of 147 energy slaves working for each of us 24/7, all year long.
As fuel costs increase and the demand for power grows, expect your electricity bill to grow as well. To all those who have not included energy conservation in their business plans, this will be a wake-up call -- don't be caught by surprise!
This year's hurricanes have global warming written all over them: the water is warmer because the atmosphere is warmer, feeding the hurricanes more energy.
For too long areas have just done what was done before when it came to building houses. Let's use some of these amazing technologies as the backbone of rebuilding the Gulf Coast.
Our proposal is to build a completely new US power system, based 100 % on renewable energy sources. These sources are to be solar photovoltaic and wind energy, plus solar thermal energy, with carbon neutral biomass fuels available in reserve, in highly efficient heat engines used to level loads and for backup.
In this paper we outline a possible alternative architecture for a successor regime, based on a single flexible emission reduction target for all countries and the principle of a treaty accession process, such as that which has resulted in other successful multilateral organisations.
A secure, clean, safe, healthy and economically efficient energy supply is no longer a technology development challenge, but largely a matter of investment in infrastructure and deployment of modern solutions on a massive scale.
Oil is running out, maybe sooner than later. Can alternatives supply a solution? There are bright spots on the horizon.

EDF Renewables offers the same innovative solutions that maximize the performance of our own 5.2 GW of installed projects. Because we're not an equipment manufacturer, our recommendations are transparent and data-driven. We cover the entire project lifecycle: from pre-commissioning support, through warranty and post warranty operation, to late stage and decommissioning.
