Reducing demand of some bioenergy crops can reduce GHG emissions: WRI ReportA new WRI report observes that some bioenergy crops such as corn-based ethanol are inefficient in supporting global energy demand and can increase carbon emissions.
Water: An additional reason for rapid deployment of sustainable energy technologiesWe don’t always know the worth of water until the well runs dry or unless we live in drought-stricken parts of the world.
Solar power competitive in 42 of the 50 largest U.S. citiesUrban homeowners can find it cheaper to invest in a fully financed solar PV system than to purchase electricity from the utilities in 42 of 50 as America’s largest cities.
Electric motorcycles and carbon emissionsOil companies use many GHG emitting processes in addition electrical power to drill, extract, refine, transport and pump that fuel before it ever ends up in a conventional car’s tank.
