  • (11) ETHANOL WON'T SOLVE ENERGY PROBLEMS (from CEC Newsletter) Environmental News Service 7/11/06 WASHINGTON รณ Ethanol is far from a cure-all for the nation's energy problems. It's not as environmentally friendly as some supporters claim and would supply only 12 percent of US motoring fuel - even if every acre of corn were used. http://www.enn.com/today.html?id=10839 Renewables...

  • Another item I've missed is the amount of oil used to grow biodiesel feedstocks. Anyone have a handle on that?

  • Will, one item I've missed with ethanol is how much oil we use to produce the ethanol. See this interesting article on corn production from the Smithsonian. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/issues/2006/july/presence.php?page=1 Steve Stelzer -----Original Message----- From: hreg@^$1 [mailto:hreg@^$2] On Behalf Of will thurmond Sent: Tuesday, July 04, 2006 10:38 PM To: hreg@^$3 Subject...

  • Folks, one of the best sources of energy efficiency information for new and existing construction in our climate (hot-humid) is the Florida Solar Energy Center. Here is their publication page, which has technical papers that cover many of the issues discussed in HREG: http://www.fsec.ucf.edu/bldg/resources/publications/index.htm Check out their whole site, which is very well done...

  • I suggest getting your energy star certificate and calling the rating company to come out and verify the insulation installation for you. If everything is installed correctly, perhaps the rater could explain why you're not comfortable. Where you need more R value per inch in a really tight space, polyisoanurate rigid insulation board is typically the best insulator. Icynene spray...

  • Nan, I would venture to say that the biggest bang for your energy buck to update an old house would be to install R-30 attic insulation, and put solar screens on the windows. Checking the AC system for leaks and making sure the ducts are fully insulated would also be worth the service call. Properly installed R-30 in the attic (with an insulated access opening) will mitigate the...

  • Mike, s ee "The End of Suburbia" or read "The Long Emergency". Maybe these oil & gas experts that are touting the end of cheap oil are lying. Who knows for absolute sure? Maybe we're in Iraq for other reasons besides their oil. No matter what happens, oil companies will make record profits. And until we all get a better picture of the real situation, I don't see a down side to...

  • HREG, Has anyone read James Howard Kunstler's "The Long Emergency - Surviving the Converging Catastrophes of the Twenty-First Century"? I'm stunned after just finishing it. It's apocalyptic to say the least. (Maybe some of you have read his "Home from Nowhere" that he wrote in '96.) His command of the language is fantastic. I recommend this book above any others for anyone who is...
