Clean, renewable energy is the future

The advancement of technology has made many products obsolete ‘ We can respect our heritage and our history while simultaneously looking to the future.

Despite the dangerous work, miners were treated very poorly. Coal companies refused to provide fair wages and safe working environments and often took advantage of workers’ impoverishment and desperation. Consider company stores, which forced workers to buy everyday goods from their employer at a premium price. Men were left indebted to the store (and, therefore, the company) simply by buying necessities to keep their families clothed and nourished. Such practices can be likened to indentured servitude.

Rebuild and improve the infrastructure of these towns, clean the waterways, restore abandoned strip mines, revitalize the main streets and protect the lands that have been left untouched so that future generations can enjoy natural beauty. Retool our empty factories and vacant industrial sites so local workers can build the components needed for a clean energy revolution.

Many things are taking place:

Hydro-Qu’bec, Central Maine Power respond to critics

As close neighbors, we have the opportunity to create a powerful, regional partnership. The approval of contracts proposed in the Massachusetts clean energy procurement process will see large quantities of 100 percent hydropower flow onto the New England grid around the clock every day of the year.’ The agreements will return unmatched consumer value in economic and reliability benefits, while helping the Commonwealth achieve a clean energy future.
The Natural Resources Council of Maine and the Sierra Club wrongly claim that energy for the Massachusetts contract will be transferred from other electricity markets

Artificial Photosynthesis: A New Renewable Energy Source?

Haley Zaremba is a writer and journalist based in Mexico City. She has extensive experience writing and editing environmental features, travel pieces, local news in the…


An international team of scientists has made a major breakthrough for the future of sustainable fuel. They achieved this major milestone by copying the methods of some of the cleanest energy producers on the planet—plants. Scientists from the University of Cambridge and the Ruhr University Bochum have discovered a new technique that mimics the natural process of photosynthesis in plants, which could be used to produce hydrogen fuel, an extremely clean (zero carbon dioxide emissions) and essentially unlimited energy source.

Scientists Just Invented a More Efficient Way to Turn Sunlight Into Unlimited, Renewable Fuel

While there’s nothing new about breaking water apart to create a clean supply of energy, most methods to date have relied on expensive catalysts, making it a challenge to go economy-size.


Photosynthesis is the rearrangement of water and carbon dioxide into glucose, locking up light energy for later use while releasing free oxygen.

It’s done a good job keeping plants, algae, and certain bacteria alive for a few billion years, and is ultimately responsible for making the fossil fuels we now burn by the tonne.

But it’s not overly efficient as far as energy capture processes go. After all, plants only need a few percent of the energy that rains down from the sky each day.

California passes 100% clean energy bill, but punts on several plans for getting there

Lawmakers didn’t vote on several bills designed to help California reach 100% clean energy, including legislation to promote Salton Sea geothermal.

Further on.

California lawmakers passed a bill last week requiring the state to get 100 percent of its electricity from climate-friendly sources like solar and wind.

But they didn’t vote on several proposals designed to help California achieve that goal, including a plan backed by Gov. Jerry Brown to connect the power grids of as many as 14 western states, as well as a bill that would have promoted geothermal energy development at the Salton Sea. The geothermal bill might’have passed, if not for last-minute opposition from state Sen. Jeff Stone, a Republican’who represents the Coachella Valley.

Is Renewable Energy Ready to Topple Fossil Fuel’s Domination?

It seems like, in the near future, renewable-energy source technologies such as solar and wind power have a chance to surpass traditional fossil fuels in terms of usage. I mention solar and wind power because these energy generators seem to be more visible than other types of renewable energy. Being born and bred in Arizona, I’m certain that solar energy sits at the top of the list. After all, it seems like almost every other week I see the occurrence of a new solar-panel installation, and there’s no shortage of annual sunshine in my neighborhood.

But, let’s step back and look at the big picture. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, renewable energy sources in 2017 collectively had a minor impact on the energy consumption in the United States (Fig. 1).
