Shale Gas & Foreign Oil: How Realistic Is US Energy Independence? frequent refrain of American politicians and policymakers with an agenda
“America is too dependent on foreign oil” is a frequent refrain of American politicians and policymakers with an agenda. Indeed, in 2011 and 2012 the US imported 40-45% of all petroleum consumed in the US – 8.5 million barrels per day worth of crude oil as well as refined products such…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/oil-gas-energy/shale-gas-foreign-oil-how-realistic-is-us-energy-independence-frequent-refrain-of-american-politicians-and-policymakers-with-an-agenda/ American politicians and policymakers, Carbon and De-carbonization, foreign oil, Future Energy Fellows, marcellus shale, natural gas, Shale gas, US Energy Independence
The Price of Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany,
The energy and climate challenge of the 21st century is easy enough to describe. For a world of 9 or 10 billion people to live at the per capita wealth and (highly efficient) energy consumption equivalent of present-day Germany, we will need three to four times as much energy as we consume…http://alternativeenergy.com.pk/national-news/the-price-of-ignoring-energy-innovation-wealth-and-highly-efficient-energy-consumption-equivalent-of-present-day-germany/ (highly efficient), Carbon and De-carbonization, carbon emissions, clean energy innovation, Cleantech, Climate, Energy and Economy, energy consumption equivalent, Finance, Ignoring Energy Innovation wealth, Politics & Legislation, population growth, present-day Germany, Renewables, Shale gas
