Fossil Fuel Energy Alternatives & Supplements

 

 

While there are no commercial alternatives to fossil fuels yet there are technologies and ideas worthy of investigation.  It is hard to compete commercially with the relatively free availability of what is in the ground so environmentalists point out that the large subsidies used to benefit the oil and gas industry might be enough to help create a commercial alternative.  Realizing that oil and gas resources are finite and that extracting fossil fuel products are becoming more difficult, wasteful and destructive, funds could be invested in researching/improving alternative energy sources such as wind, solar, uranium-free nuclear and others.   So why do we continue to finance a progressively “dirty” energy industry when we could be investing in “clean” renewable projects?

 

 

Vancouver

 

Vancouver captures methane at the landfill and use it to heat greenhouses. They even take the warmth that naturally accumulates in sewers and use it to heat homes.

“A smart grid combined with better energy storage mechanisms could handle the intermittency and decentralized nature of renewable energy sources in a way that can overwhelm today’s industrial era grids.  But in a slow-growth global economy hell-bent on austerity, the prospects for large government investments in grid resilience look slim.” Nafeez Ahmed, Ph.D.  (source)
