You can’t have failed to notice the rising gas prices. Even if you haven’t got a car you’ll have had your ear chewed off by all the people you get rides from about how expensive it is to run a car.

China has relatively few natural energy resources in comparison to its power needs. As it grows economically, it is going to need more and more oil, natural gas and so on. At the same time, these resources are being depleted around the world. The admittedly foggy estimates reveal we may have 60 to 80 years of oil and natural gas left. In fact, peak oil production is occurring now in 2007. After this year, the amount of oil being pumped around the world will start to drop and it will not recover. This lack of resources is surely going to be the basis of political, economic and military conflict with China, or is it?

Not only will you build up higher levels of power after a workout, your abs will become stronger. Granted strength of your abs is not entirely what you’re after, however the strength should be seen as a testament of how you’re getting results with each abs workout!

In the true sense, solar power if developed well can supply the whole world. On the first place, sun is a free source of energy compared to hydropower plants owned by several companies wherein you need to pay monthly. Otherwise, they will cut the supply of your home’s power. But what’s great about solar power is that, it promotes green environment. There no need to burn fossil fuels just to produce electricity.

One of the renewable energy sources that is really moving forward is known as biomass. This allows for common waste materials including wood, trash, crops, and even gases from landfills to be used to create energy. This is also going to reduce the amount of materials lying around in our landfills. Maybe one day the use of geothermal energy will be more plausible. Right now though it is complex, complicated, and expensive. The procedure for accessing it involves going into the core of the Earth more than 4,000 miles beneath the surface.

It is often presumed that self-sufficiency in energy is only for nerds, but this is not true, it is now within the reach of every family or household. If you have lots of money, a solar or wind powered system will cost you about $45,000 and it will take about ten years to recover your investment by getting off the grid. However, you can have the same apparatus for much less than half that amount.

#3 – Living in a solar energy home is like powering it from the universe – with free energy! You will never, ever get a monthly “solar utilities” bill. It’s just not going to happen. The sun belongs to everyone, and the power it flings out into space is inexhaustible and free to collect. If you had five hundred billion solar panels all pointing at the sun, all at the same time, you would still never deplete the sun of its energy, even in the slightest degree. It’s just far too plentiful. This is a truly sustainable energy source. This means that it is constantly renewable – quite different from burning fossil fuels which can only get consumed and never replaced… nor are they continually being produced.
