Alloy Nanoparticles for Carbon Dioxide Reduction

In many ways, we are used to one-way reactions, such as glass breaking and not healing, and fire consuming, not restoring a material. Under the right circumstances though, many reactions can be reversed, at least in part. Among these is converting carbon ... [Published Overclockers Club - 19 hours ago]

Quotes

...We don't remember his name or what company he was with. All we remember was at a public hearing a man got up and said: "The day will come when people will be able to produce their own electricity and the Power Companies will have to have fundraising projects to survive. He predicted that developers would install mini-nuclear reactors in subdivisions and provide electrical power for the homes in that subdivision. As we recall, people laughed at the man. Now it appears he was prophetic."
"One of the things we were looking at in particular is how the levels of air pollution compare in traffic to what you see at the official air pollutionpollution monitoring sites, which typically are not in traffic and instead on the roofs of buildings where they can sort of tell you more about what the background levels of air pollution are in a city. And what we found is the levels of air pollution were substantially higher in traffic than in urban background levels."
...raising the bill that they charge us for our contract police services that we contract with the Sheriff's Office here for police," Pope said. "That concerns me because it takes away the local control of our budget. I believe that we can dodo it as good, or better, more efficiently and more responsible to our Oakley taxpayers if we bring it in house."
When it comes to rooftop solar, a battle is brewing worldwide against utilities and users.   "It's still less than one percent of energy capacity worldwide, but the surge in installations of rooftop solar panels is beginning to hit utilities and their business model of charging customers on the basis of consumption. Joined by traditional energy companies, they are lobbying governments to reverse decades of subsidies to green, renewable energy such as solar and, in some cases, to tax them. In Europe, Australia and in the United States, energy companies have powerful lobbies that argue that they form a cornerstone of the economy and provide jobs to tens of thousands. Governments are forced to pay heed and in some cases they have acted."  Tracy Rucinski and Byron Kaye in  Reuters
