Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost Of Our oil Addiction

I came upon this publication whereas discovering an Economics Masters thesis. As anyone that has been focusing progressively more on strength comparable matters, I picked this publication up.

To say the least, it's very intellectually cheating. whereas some of the issues he says have a few grain of fact, he in many instances cherry alternatives to help his view that the area will cave in if we do not do anything drastic instantly. I particuarly cherished how he attempted to indicate that his cigarette smoking father don't have died of emphysema if we did not have any smog.

He begins out by way of overblowing the environmental harm that oil construction and intake charges - yet then has the hubris to assert we are going to be out in many years besides. If we'll be out, it can look that the environmental challenge it motives will stop in a number of years.

This leads me to his terrible prediction of skyrocketing oil costs and grim photo of the longer term (which in his brain is in 2025). His estimation of oil reserves is cherry picked to aid his panic inducing tone.

The fact is that there's a lot petroleum in the world that the single quandary of use may possibly in reality be the enironmental price. In my brain, he misplaced major credibility by way of claiming we'd have oil shortages through 2025.

He additionally is going right into a tirade approximately international oil, implying that every one of our oil comes from sheiks which are attempting to bomb us. in fact our unmarried biggest provider of oil is Canada. Mexico is #2 and Venezuela #3. in reality, if he had counting Canada's tar sands, Canada has extra oil than the other state in the world. If we have been to count number oil shale (which is simply most economical to provide at 70-90 a barrel) the united states has the power to be power autonomous with this resource on my own.

Overall, this booklet spouts out loads of numbers with out quite interpreting the context of the values. He cherry choices to get expense estimates that bolster his view element (and most likely additional his occupation and admiration among the trustworthy) and comfortably ignores every little thing else.

In Fig. 10 On the basis of these requirements, only the requirement for “Teleprotection” is very challenging for current commercial networks. The long-term evolution (LTE) techniques in the NGN mobile networks are able to satisfy such challenging latency performance requirement. 11). So if we consider LTE we cannot say that the latency requirement for “Teleprotection” cannot be satisfied, but it would be essentially a matter of cost and real usage conditions. Anyway, the number of communication nodes for grid “Protection” is very low compared with the number of communication nodes needed by other Smart Grid capabilities.

Born from a local effort to help Austin segue from a semiconductor and dot-com city to a leader in the smart grid and renewable energy industries, Pecan Street is a nonprofit consortium headquartered at The University of Texas at Austin (UT). It is led by Brewster McCracken, who helped launch the project in 2008 when as a member of the Austin City Council he sat on the board of the municipal utility, Austin Energy (AE), which provides electric service to a million customers. Jump started by a $10 million grant from the Department of Energy in 2009, and governed by the city, the utility, UT, Environmental Defense Fund, the Austin Chamber of Commerce and the Austin Technology Incubator, Pecan Street is building an “energy internet” in a green-built community on the site of Austin’s redeveloped Mueller Airport.

By sad contrast, in electricity, demand has plummeted along with the collapse of the economy. Where we thought in 2008 that natural gas at $12 a thousand cubic feet would preclude that fuel from competing with wind or even solar, and where we thought in 2008 that we needed to add 2% to the generation capacity of the United States every year, we now see that we don’t need to add much generation for the United States until the end of the decade, except as replacement for what now exists. As an irony of history, the recession has done more to reduce CO2 emissions than all of the regulatory efforts in the last 3 years.
