In today’s world, energy is the most important resource to ensuring the stability and security of future generations.  Essentially, energy is the ability of a system to work on other physical systems, growing food, driving to work, mowing the lawn, and powering a light all require energy.  

Energy plays an all-important role in today’s society, so much that many cannot imagine a life in which they could not access the internet, commute 60 miles a day, operate any device, avoid any obstacle, or grow any food due to the lack of energy.  

However recent economic and social events have showed that energy is one of the first effected resources during financial, political, or social unrest, typically as a result of the interest of controlling or subduing the public, or profiting during times of financial hardships.

Outages and power quality issues cost US businesses more than $100 billion on average each year.  It is asserted that assuring more stable power provided by smart grid technologies will reduce downtime and prevent such high losses

There is marketing evidence of consumer demand for greater choice. A survey conducted in the summer of 2007 interviewed almost 100 utility executives and sought the opinions of 1,900 households and small businesses from the U.S., Germany, Netherlands, England, Japan and Australia.

Among the findings:

  • 83% of those who cannot yet choose their utility provider would welcome that option
  • Roughly two-thirds of the customers that do not yet have renewable power options would like the choice
  • Almost two-thirds are interested in operating their own generation, provided they can sell power back to the utility.
 

You can expect advocates to dominate discussions – ‘honest brokers’ are few & far between

As a result: Policy discussions in energy/climate are often only weakly coupled to quantitative analyses, and ‘facts’ tend to be elusive

 

The organization’s stance on nuclear power is primarily related to the rapidly escalating costs of maintenance and construction, which shows no sign of tempering.  For all practical purposes, nuclear power’s economic gains are privatized, while its risks are socialized, making it an inferior selection to other renewable energy alternatives.  Additionally, the expansion of research and development in alternative energy technologies is severely limited by the role nuclear energy plays in the global energy market.

Current limitations and difficulties will likely only grow more apparent for alternative energy producers at the current rate, due to the pending global spent fuel crisis, which will require extensive legislation to allow even less controlled temporary storage, or a massive costly permanent waste storage facility, estimates of these types of permanent storage facilities easily exceed

Enformable  is a proud sponsor of and advocate for new technologies otherwise limited by the lack of funding, support, and awareness in the public sector,

Enformable researchers are available to speak on a wide variety of topics, from the basics of going green to the breaking news of the day.

    • Thanks for the tip, will be adding to the new look this week. Thanks for the suggestion as well.

        I second that motion, CaptD. :-) Thanks. For example, here’s a link to a newly-released radiation fallout study conducted by the USGS of precipitation and air filters in U.S. cities in March last year after the explosions at Fukushima: http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2011/1277/

        Why these findings were only just now released nearly one year later should be a question in every thinking American’s mind. The researchers state the intention of the report was just to state the facts and discuss the research methodology and NOT to state any potential health implications from human exposure to such levels of radiation. So if the USGS isn’t responsible for informing the public in a TIMELY manner about the public’s potential exposure and health implications, then thinking Americans would like to know: WHO IS???

        • arome7@gmail.com'

          As a follow up to my above comment about the newly released USGS report on radiation fallout findings in the U.S. post-Fukushima, I would like to call your attention to one statement on page 12 of the report, under the section: “Analysis of Filtered Particulates”:

          “Radioactive isotopes released from the Fukushima Dia-Ichi Nuclear Power Plant were assumed to have affinity for adsorption onto aerosol particles, which are washed out of the atmosphere in wet deposition. Therefore, the NTN filters were originally targeted for gamma spectrometry analysis. As shown later herein, this initial assumption proved to be invalid.”

          The reason I am calling your readers’ attention to this is due to the practice of the spraying of aerosol particles in our skies both in the U.S. and worldwide. While the MSM has ignored this practice, thousands of people have been documenting this spraying of barium, aluminum oxide, etc. on YouTube for many years, but increasingly more so post-Fukushima.

          While there has been no official government statement about the reasons behind this practice, some have speculated it is for purposes of weather modification, and radiation remediation. The Soviets engaged in such spraying over Belarus in efforts of raining out radiation from Chernobyl. And indeed, Seattle experienced a “hailstorm” on March 15 last year, which I am assuming was a direct result of similar efforts in the U.S. immediately following the explosions at Fukushima, as the radiation plume wafted towards the West Coast of the U.S. via the Jet Stream.

          However, if what the USGS scientists state is true, that such spraying did NOT actually attract the radiation as hoped, then perhaps those nations involved in such “chemtrail” spraying should re-evaluate such practices, especially given the lack of impact studies on the public’s health of exposure to these aerosol particles which are being increasingly sprayed over our heads on a daily basis?

          Who is calling the shots here, and who is making these all-important decisions which could affect our health, without the public’s consent or even knowledge? Where are the impact studies???

          Is this the new definition of democracy in America? If so, when did such a limited new definition arise? Have we Americans been sleeping through this period of the erosion of our blessed Democracy? And more importantly, how do we reverse this deterioration and save our nation? Would our brave new leaders kindly step forward before its too late???

          I would be highly interested to see a discussion of the above-mentioned topics here on Enformable.

          As always, thank you for your ongoing efforts to present the truth to the public.

        • Submit News Tips links added to menus. Will add a sidebar text entry space soon.

          Thanks for the USGS info, will look to get something out

            Thank you.

    In June of 2011, the US Government flew a helicopter over areas of Seattle and the Puget sound to get “baseline” radiation readings. There were several news articles about this. See:
    http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/2011/07/10/helicopter-testing-seattle-for-radiation-but-its-not-what-you-think/
    While I could understand why the Feds might not want to release point source info, I don’t see any reason why they should not be able to release background levels. Any chance you guys can do a FOIA request to get the background data released? If would be nice to know what the Cs147 and Sr90 background / recent deposition levels are. Presumably, they have this data for other cities, too. Might be nice to see if any patterns (e.g. around nuke plants) can be determined.

    Thanks for everything you have been doing. It’s been terrific. Keep up the great work.

    Hi all,
    I am new to your service. Good work! I am Research Director for a website of analyses on energy — http://www.SafeEnergyAnalyst.org. My most recent analysis covers how the U.S. has improved its energy use by about 50% per dollar of economic output from 1973 to 2011. I also cover nukes, coal and other energy issues. Might there be a good way to link our work?

    What’s the deal with Compass and Bechtel? Have they merged or will they? Good luck to you.
