America’s Solar Energy Potential

Every hour, the sun radiates more energy onto the earth than the entire human population uses in one whole year. The technology required to harness the power of the sun is available now. Solar power alone could provide all of the energy Americans consume — there is no shortage of solar energy. The following paragraphs … Read more

Hydrogen

Why hydrogen? Because hydrogen is a clean universal fuel that can be used to power cars, trucks, planes, trains, buses, boats and ships. Hydrogen can heat homes and commercial buildings, and generate electricity. Hydrogen can replace all forms of fossil fuels. A nation that has converted all of its power systems to run on hydrogen … Read more

Synthetic Alcohol

ke all synthetic fuels, the manufacture of synthetic alcohol begins with gasification of heavy hydrocarbons such as coal, or lighter carbon resources such as natural gas, biomass and organic landfill waste — using a process that involves high temperature and pressure in an oxygen-controlled atmosphere. Gasification produces a synthesis gas, sometimes called syngas (from synthesis gas), which, after cleaned, consists mostly of … Read more

Natural CO2

Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere provides the primary source of carbon for growing plant life on earth; from the smallest microalgae in the oceans to the largest trees on land. Carbon dioxide—CO2—is an essential part of the cycle of life. Without a source of CO2, plants will die off, and without plant life the earth’s … Read more

Algae Farms

American Energy Independence will be achieved when all cars, trucks and buses on U.S. highways are powered by transportation fuels produced in the USA. Widescale Biodiesel Production from Algae By Michael Briggs, University of New Hampshire, Physics Department As more evidence comes out daily of the ties between the leaders of petroleum producing countries and … Read more
