Germans pay the price for renewable energy

Posted by admin on December 29, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 25 Comments


It has been over a year since German Chancellor Angela Merkel set the goal of a nuclear-free future for Germany by 2022. The widespread adoption of Renewable Energy, however, has left consumers bearing the burden of the changes. Some bills in Germany could even go up by 47 percent. Al Jazeera’s Nick Spicer reports from Berlin.

Smart meter ‘opt out’?

VICTORIA – The NDP says it’s time the BC Utilities Commission steps in to help those who wish to opt out.

Just one day after the province announced BC Hydro will get a one year extension to complete smart meter installation province-wide, the NDP’s energy critic says enough is enough.

The Liberals exempted the smart meter program from oversight by the BCUC when it passed the Clean Energy Act in 2010, something the NDP says has led to the current mistrust of the much aligned meters.

Energy Critic John Horgan says it’s time the BCUC was restored to its regulatory purpose.

What are you doing to reduce global warming?

Posted by admin on December 28, 2012 in Global Warming with 8 Comments


There are so many actions we as humans can take to reduce and slow Global Warming.

For example, I always do carpool when going off town with other friends or family. I always recycle and put everything in the right container. I use my bike to go close places. I reduce the electricity usage in my house and many other things that we sometimes think don’t effect the cause.

What are you doing to reduce global warming?

I am doing nothing specifically to reduce global warming. However, I did switch to compact flourescents, but that was an economic decision. Does that reduce pollution/carbon dioxide emissions? Sure, and I consider that as a secondary benefit of the primary decision.

As technology continues to improve other products and processes, I will probably make other changes as well, but not until it makes economic sense. That probably sounds selfish to someone that is convinced that global warming is occuring. But, I work too hard for my money to spend it on anything that I don’t feel is worthwhile. When I am convinced that our emissions are the cause, then I will be forced to consider that as a primary factor in my decisions.

Many are convinced that global warming is occurring and that is fine. I have looked at a lot of information and based on the great number of variable, inputs, and feedbacks to the issue of global temperature, I believe that trying to do anything drastic now to affect emissions would be like putting a blanket over your head and trying to walk across a busy street. Before we spend money, increase our efforts, or impact productivity for this cause, I am prepared to wait longer for further information to clarify what would be the most effective changes, if any, we should make.

should rainwater harvesting be made mandatory for all malls?

Posted by admin on December 28, 2012 in Environment Protection with 12 Comments


Environment Protection should not be neglected and big investment must ensure it so that a large number of people realize its importance.

Yes… and business too… well, let me clarify – I do NOT believe that old malls and business should have to retrofit – the cost would be too high, but NEW construction should certainly be mandated to use roof/parking lot water.

It a good idea for people to gutter their houses too (although I am AGAINST mandating that!) and storing the rain runoff for lawns etc…
Bermuda and many other countries take almost ALL their water from the roof tops – great idea!

Can you clear something up for me about wind turbines as alternative sources of clean enregy?

Posted by admin on December 28, 2012 in Clean Energy with 12 Comments


Someone we met a few months ago told us that wind turbines used to make Clean Energy create sound at a frequency that people cannot audibly hear but which disrupts their sleep patterns and thereby disrupts their health seriously. Is this true? Who has proven this? Please cite sources for info. Thanks for good answers and help with this. :)

Makwa, being we (my town) has a plant that builds win turbines, It is not proven—people sleep fine cuz the turbines are up so high and going so fast that if you could hear them, the "whistling" noise from the speed of its blades turning would put you to sleep. Well, maybe not you but fer sure me.

How did People respond to renewable energy?

Posted by admin on December 26, 2012 in Renewable Energy with 3 Comments


what is your view on renewable energy?? is it good or bad?? Can you help me get many points of view on Renewable Energy??
then leave a comment please!

The only energy we get on this planet comes from the sun and nucular materials found here on earth. renewable is a point of view. it all has to do with how much you use and how long it takes to be replaced. You also have to look at how energy is being collected. Solar pannels for example take energy to make that energy has to be taken out of how much they produce to get an accurate number.

But in general renewable energy is very good. If we are using more energy than can be replaced we will run out some day. Same as our economy, if we keep importing more then we export we will run out of money some day.

Is global warming just a scapegoat people use to get out of protecting the environment?

Posted by admin on December 26, 2012 in Global Warming with 11 Comments


With the ghost of global warming haunting us, we can displace entire ecosystems all day long so long as carbon emissions don’t increase. Heck, killing animals is encouraged. They emit carbon, too!

What kind of madness is this?

Global Warming IS the reason to protect the environment… the UN has said that Factory Farming is a leading cause of greenhouse gases & should be phased out… that doesn’t mean "kill the animals", it means stop raising them & switch to a vegetarian diet.

Albert Einstein said,- "Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.".
