The Yes Men - 0 views

  •  
    "The Yes Men agree their way into the fortified compounds

    of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle out the stories of their

    hijinks to

    provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business. In other

    words, the Yes Men are team players... but they play for the opposing team."

    Interesting way of doing business-incriminating evidence straight from the horse's mouth?  The evidence against Dow is pretty substantial.

Southwest Windpower: Renewable Wind Energy - 0 views

  •  
    I think this is very exciting. Wind generators that can be used at a household scale for those already plugged into the grid could revolutionize energy production. It will be interesting to see if these wind generators become prevalent across the nation, or if they are blocked by the Not In My Backyard effect and other challenges. It would be nice to see these wind generators at a smaller, more manageable scale.

    This is something I have never heard of! In some ways it seems very futuristic and sci-fi. However, if this could be implemented without major reconstruction of infrastructure and consumption goods, it could be a very exciting source of energy. I'm curious to find out more about this topic.

The Minewater Project - 0 views

  •  
    This is another idea I have never heard of. It seems that using the geothermal energy stored by mine water to heat and cool buildings could be a viable energy source. However, is it safe? And couldn't it be considered a non-renewable resource?

HiPER Project - 0 views

  •  
    I wonder if fusion as an energy source does not make the news as often as other alternative fuel because it is harder to grasp by the general public. Scientists seem to think that it is a safe, sustainable, powerful fuel source. However, I would like to research more into this process. I would also like to find out how similar this process is to that used in the nuclear power plants that are in use today.

Envision Solar - 0 views

  •  
    I think passive solar power is one of the most powerful, and yet most simple and subtle, energy sources we have available. It's neat to see a multi-disciplinary firm working toward a focused, yet multi-faceted, goal. As a landscape architecture major, this is a field that I could see myself pursuing.

Geothermal power - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    I didn't realize that there are three types of geothermal power plants. I have heard that this is a very intensive process, and the site even states that this process is not renewable in the traditional sense of the word. Nonetheless, it seems that this could be a very viable power source for many parts of the world.
