Air pollution kills 30,000 people each year and makes hundreds of thousands of others sick.

For the past one hundred years, electric companies have primarily generated electricity from burning fossil fuels like coal and oil.

When fossil fuels burn, they emit air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming.

Each year the electricity industry adds millions of metric tons of these pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.

And until now, consumers were unable to do anything about it.
Deregulation of the retail electricity market presents an opportunity to introduce a change for the better.

To date, five new renewable plants have been built to meet demand from Green Mountain Energysm customers.

Operating these plants keeps 40 tons of sulfur dioxide (acid rain), 43 tons of nitrogen oxides (smog and acid rain), and 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide (global warming) pollution out of the air every year.

Even now, despite the proven health and environmental impacts, coal-fueled power plants are as popular as ever because the supply of coal remains plentiful and cheap.

An even cheaper alternative, nuclear power, creates dangerous waste that remains radioactive for thousands of years.
There is still no safe technique for permanently disposing of nuclear waste.
Environmental Impacts of Air Pollution and Global Warming

Acid rain, disrupts the natural pH level in lakes and streams, leaving these bodies of water barren of plant life and animal species.

It also stunts the growth of high-elevation trees like the Red Spruce, a native to the Appalachian Mountain Range.

Acid rain may also accelerate the decay of building materials and paints including stone, wood, concrete, and many all-weather house paints.

Impaired visibility created by sulfate particles, produced by SOx, has obscured by 50% some of the most spectacular vistas in Shenandoah National Park and the Great Smokey Mountains in Virginia.

Altered landscapes and ecosystems may result in decreased crop yields, water supplies, and forest productivity.
Health Impacts of Air Pollution and Global Warming:

Air pollution kills at least 30,000 people every year and makes hundreds of thousands of others sick.

Increased spread of infectious diseases like malaria and the West Nile virus.

More weather-related deaths among people with heart and lung conditions.

Increases in respiratory illnesses including Asthma and Acute Respiratory Disease in children and lowered resistance to respiratory infections.

Increases in hospital visits and mortality rates.
Can technology help find oil fast enough?
Even the most ardent proponents of technology say there’s no guarantee that advances will come fast enough and be applied quickly enough to head off the possibility of oil shortages in the future.

But they note that most of the major increases in discovery and production in this century have been associated with major Technology breakthroughs that open up new supplies.

“What we saw as a limitation 20 years ago is no longer a limitation now, so who’s to say in 20 years whether our current limitations will be relevant?
Sept. 22, 2004--- How long will the world's oil last?
As production peaks, economic impact could be dire.

When the modern oil industry was born 145 years ago in Titusville, Pa., few people worried about just how long petroleum would keep flowing out of the ground.

But since production peaked in the United States in 1970, a growing number of geologists, economists and industry analysts have been pondering the question of just how long worldwide supplies will keep up with growing demand.

And some are predicting that global production may peak as soon as next year.
This year, global demand for oil — currently at more than 80 million barrels per day and climbing — has come closer than ever to exceeding the world’s known production capacity.

Disruptions in oil supply due to wars or market forces like OPEC embargoes — are nothing new.
But with producers pumping as fast as they can, there is little cushion for temporary supply interruptions or heightened demand from industrializing countries like China and India.

We really are close enough to the edge to have no excess capacity. Demand growth shows no sign of slowing and now it seems to be accelerating.

The question now being raised is whether new reserves can be discovered fast enough to both replace depleted oil fields and keep up with growing demand.

The worry is whether there is something worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s waiting for us — particularly that the United States gets heavily hurt because we burn a quarter of the world’s oil. It’s a finite resource; we can’t get around that.

Eventually, you’re going to get to the point where there’s not any more to find.

Economists also argue that higher oil prices will eventually reduce demand as consumers choose more efficient cars and energy producers develop alternatives like Hydrogen Fuel Cell power.

But there is no way to predict whether oil demand will fall fast enough – or alternative energy sources will be developed quickly enough -- to avoid an economic shock like the oil shortages of the 1970s.

The debate over oil reserve estimates and demand-production trends is not just academic; at stake is nothing less than the economic well-being of the world over the next few decades.

There are numerous scenarios describing the transition from a global economy based on fossil fuels to whatever energy sources ultimately replace them.

The most extreme pessimists – found on Web sites like – foresee a kind of global return to the Stone Age as a world deprived of energy is beset by anarchy and starvation.

And even the most optimistic scientists who believe oil production will soon peak warn that the transition to a post-petroleum world will require an enormous undertaking involving breakthrough technologies and massive amounts of capital.

If I’m right about the time scale we’ve got a problem,” said Deffeyes.
“I don’t think you could reverse the decline.

In an ideal world you might stretch the time decline of the curve out about five years.
In the meantime, many scientists are looking for those alternatives sources.

Some have suggested that technologies promoting cleaner-burning coal -– still in plentiful supply in the U.S. -– will help bridge the oil gap. Others have suggested that nuclear power will become more attractive if oil production declines too rapidly.

Wind power, more widely used outside the U.S., has a proven track record. More advanced technologies -– like the conversion of coal to hydrogen also show promise.
The “hydrogen economy"
has been widely touted because it relied on an energy source that produces no carbon or other pollutants when burned.
Carbon tubes Dr. Richard Smalley at Rice University thinks the answer may be found in a fundamental overhaul of the global electrical grid.

Smalley won a Nobel Price in Chemistry in 1996 for his work in the discovery of fullerenes, a structure of carbon atoms arranged in a closed shell.

He’s now working on tiny carbon tubes that could be used to produce a highly-conductive, carbon-based wire that would improve the efficiency of the electrical grid and permit cheaper long-distance power transmission.

He also envisions advanced electrical storage devices that would allow homeowners and businesses to smooth out periods of peak power production and demand.

But the breakthroughs needed to make that happen will amount to “minor miracles.

Even if we had the technology right now to supplant to the current energy system with something new and wonderful, it would still take us several decades to do it because its such a big enterprise.

looking at the transition away from petroleum Hydrogen will inevitably play a major role.

At some stage , someone is going to have to stand up and say, ‘We have a problem here and I think we ought to go out and solve it."
Or "Often something looks impossible until somebody just grits his teeth and does it!"

Hydrogen-Electric High-Speed Train Transportation Technology for the 21st Century

A group of private investors is making a pitch for a $6.9 billion high-speed rail line called XpressWest from Victorville to Las Vegas, and hopes to get a massive federal loan before the end of this summer.
Long Beach Press-Telegram - Aug 11, 2012

Within a few years, India should have high-speed trains zipping about its countryside at speeds ranging from 300-350 km per hour.

 Unappetizing Airline Fare?
A decade ago, U.S. airlines spent $6.11 per passenger for food.

Last year that figure was down to $4.17, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

And for the first six months of this year, they spent $3.97 per passenger.

The shrinking numbers don't tell the whole story, of course, especially when you're the one flying across multiple states fortified by a small bag of pretzels and a diet soda.

To the rescue: A sometimes hilarious Web site,, tells surfers at the click of a mouse what kind of haute cuisine, or not, to expect on a range of airlines.

Besides color photos of the meals, there are candid, sometimes critical remarks and reviews, and a forum for sharing gripes.

If the meal meant for you looks unappetizing, you can put together your own emergency kit of food. And, experts say, the choices in portable food that won't spoil are becoming more plentiful.

The airline meal Web site is the brainchild of Marco 't Hart, a 32-year-old graphic and Web designer from Rotterdam, Netherlands, who launched it as a lark.

For more than two years he flew from his home to Istanbul, Turkey, to visit his girlfriend every two months or so.

"While in Turkey, I was always photographing everything to show the people at home," he says.
"Sometimes I also took pictures of my meals.

One time my mom asked, "And what do you eat on the plane?"

"That was my reason to take a picture of my meal, which is now Turkish Airlines image 0010 on the site."

Next he searched the Web to see whether anyone else had photographed an airline meal for posterity and found about 20 photos from eight or nine carriers, which he posted.

Things really got rolling earlier this year, when he posted his request for photos of airline meals in four or five online newsgroups.

Since then the photos have poured in, and the Web site now boasts more than 1,000 photos from airlines large and small.

Although meals are subject to change, the photos can give you a general idea of what you'll be served.

Suppose you are flying Aer Lingus, economy class, from Dublin to Los Angeles. Click on Aer Lingus image 013 and take a peek at lunch: chicken in mushroom gravy, potatoes, French beans.

The comment: "Tasted a bit better than it looks. Not much chicken." There's some whining, not surprisingly.

A hungry passenger's remark about the "dinner snack" on an ATA flight from Chicago to Washington, D.C.: "I paid $264 for a ticket, and all they can afford is 15 peanuts and a cookie?"

The site also has a forum for trading info about the food. One Qantas flier asks, "Where has all the good food service gone?

Qantas now presents all meals in economy class in a box, and the food is always boring."

The top complaints, Hart says, are tasteless food, "undefinable" meat, skimpy portions or food that is too hot or too cold. Some passengers -- mostly first-class or business -- compliment.

Some mention presentation; others say the food was the best they ever had on a plane.

If you don't like what you see when you take a look at the Web site or ask your reservations agent, it's easier than ever to pack enough food for the trip.

When travelers ask Terri Rock, a Los Angeles-area family practice physician who has a special interest in travel medicine, what to take, she often suggests the new tuna-in-a-pouch products.

The pouches don't need to be drained and don't require refrigeration before opening. (The products are pungent, though, so you might attract a little unwanted attention from fellow passengers.)

The product PB Slices is another good option. It's peanut butter packaged like individual slices of cheese; each wrapped slice has an ounce of peanut butter and 170 calories.

For more information, see And take along some Tums, Rock suggests. They're a handy way to be sure you get your calcium. If you eat strange food, they can quell a queasy stomach too.

She also suggests granola bars, beef sticks, Cheez Whiz and, if you ask for bottled water, packets of dehydrated chicken soup and oatmeal.

Rock recommends that travelers in developing countries follow the same precautions with food on the airplane that they do while dining at their destination:

They should not drink water unless they are sure it is safe, and they should avoid salad greens that may have been washed in contaminated water.

After all, she reasons, the airline and restaurants on the ground use the same food and drink suppliers. "Meal replacement bars" have become common, says Evelyn Tribole, a dietitian and author of Eating on the Run (Human Kinetics, 1991).

meal bar, The name is a bit of a misnomer, she says: "Many barely have 280 calories," not enough to make a satisfying meal.

But if you choose to take along some of the bars, she advises looking for a brand "with at least 10 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber."

This is easier said than done, as she knows. Promoted as a meal bar, the apple-cinnamon variety of a product called Satisfaction, made by Balance Bar, has 280 calories, 12 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber.

Slim-Fast also makes meal replacement bars; its milk chocolate peanut bar has 220 calories and 8 grams of protein but just 2 grams of fiber.

Consider packing some trail mix or a package of dried fruit, Tribole suggests. "It's indestructible. If you sit on it, it's no big deal."

Look no further than the suburbs to see how American ideals about success are transforming.

People in the US suburbs are changing the way they shop, where they eat, and what they want in their homes.

Malls are shutting down as e-commerce continues to take over, and the casual-dining chains that fed shoppers after a day of hoofing it through the mall are struggling to cope.
