Comments on: Kinder: wind, solar not the answer to U.S. energy needs http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/06/02/kinder-wind-solar-not-the-answer-to-us-energy-needs/ Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: indeed http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/06/02/kinder-wind-solar-not-the-answer-to-us-energy-needs/comment-page-1/#comment-1083 Wed, 09 Sep 2009 18:14:40 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/?p=3158#comment-1083 yeah its the hydroelectric capacity that represents the largest amount of ‘renewables’. Yet, all hydro capacity has been tapped.

Too late to buy shares?
The Chinese seem to prefer national self sufficiency where possible, rather than needing a “global reach” (at what cost?) to obtain energy resources.
But large scale research and production will give a big lead in 21st century energy while America lives off its 20th century road and oil investment.

Intrestingly enough there seems to be a mercury plum down wind from the local coal plant the Bush’s buddies upgraded with clean coal tech.

Pretty much:
I own stocks in atomics, Atomic power is “teh KEYZ”
I have intrests in GW’s bushes “clean” coal, coal is teh anwser!

Im an oil baron, Oil is teh answer!1!!!!!

Come on already…

New Zealand does about 70% of its power generation with geothermal. Geothermal is available in many locations and is a constant heat source with no burning of fuel and is just there for the using. What we dearly need is a method of energy storage where we can level the load, plus we need a new grid for power distribution.

We breathe it out, plants breathe it in. Plants need carbon dioxide to survive. Without it they will die. If we had no CO2 in the atmosphere, we would freeze to death. This is a power grab by big government to control our lives. Don’t be fooled.

A lot of people don’t know exactly what clean coal technology is, so I’ll fill you in: it refers not to any one technology, but to an entire suite of advanced technologies.

During the America’s Power Factuality Tour, we’ve been traveling around the country talking to the people who are behind the production of cleaner electricity from coal – including a stop at the Pleasant Prairie Power Plant in Wisconsin. They’ve installed a retrofit system that has reduced nitrogen oxide emissions by 90 percent and sulfur dioxide emissions by 95 percent.

In addition, through a pilot project in partnership with Alstom Power, they’re developing the latest in carbon capture technology. Check out http://sn.im/factuality5 to get the facts on clean coal technology once and for all.

why are oil, coal and natural gas the only choices for energy sector investment on the exchange?

why not list all of the challengers too…and let’m make their pitch to the consuming public…that is fair play…talk about free market…get the other guys thumb off the scale and perhaps we may accomplish something
