    World Call In, Why Renewable Energy?

    in Energy

    What is so important about renewable energy?  If it is so good, why isn't it being used everywhere?  What is stopping the spread of renewable energies, sun, wind and biomas?  Is the fossil fuel lobby the main reason?  Does 'Big Oil' control economics, world wide?  Presently, solar pv energy is experiencing a surge.  Leasing options are available and many small companies are surfacing along with the familiar names that have been around since the 70's (like Real Goods Solar, etc).  Why has solar pv become so attractive all of a sudden?  Let's discuss all of the above and try to make sense of what has happened and what is happening and what should happen.  What will really serve the interests  of everyone?

    Are Invasive Species A Viable Option For Renewable Energy?

    in Environment

    As we shift from petroleum-based energy to renewable energy, the production of biofuel, created from invasive species appears to be a viable option. However, certain plant species which have been proposed for biofuel production include invasive species and/or other plants which have the potential to escape cultivation. Is this a good solution for eliminating an environmental issue while satisfying an energy need or is this type of biofuel merely creating a disaster in the making? In this segment of The Clean Energy View Radio Show, hosts, June Stoyer and special guest host, Luis Mejia talk to Dr. Lewis Ziska about the pros and cons of using invasive species as biofuel. Dr. Ziska is a Plant Physiologist with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Maryland. After graduating from the University of California, Davis, he began his career as a Smithsonian fellow, and then took up residence as the Project Leader for global climate change at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines before joining USDA. Dr. Ziska has published numerous papers on carbon dioxide and climate change impacts on agriculture, weed biology and public health. At present he is investigating the role of rising carbon dioxide and changing climate on food security, invasive species and aerobiology. Dr. Ziska's research has appeared in: The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report and CNN Headline News.

    Renewable Energy to the Rescue!

    in Energy

    jeff, dennis and susan will talk about the possitive impacts that renewable energy has on planet earth.   our human activities are changing the climate world wide.  The activity with the most negative impact is human use of fossil fuels.  We have known for at least 60 years( when was the first space station set up?) when solar arrays were created and deployed in space to power the space station, that we can get limitless energy from the sun...  why isn't it our preferred fuel source?  why are we still dependent on fossil fuels that release poisons into the air we breath and carbon into the atmosphere that is changing our climate cycles, world wide?   please join our conversation and lets figure out solutions not just talk about all the problems.  call in at 347-215-6731 to talk to the host.
