Local projects are slowing a bit, so I’ve been focusing a bit more on National and International issues. Not surprisingly, I believe that it is absolutely essential to begin focusing on renewable energy. The Oil Drum has a fantastic post about exciting developments in Solar Thermal energy. Curiosity of this post led me to the fine Peak Energy blog, which has a lengthy look into the power just waiting to be tapped in our oceans. A search revealed another source with potential: Geothermal. It seems that the Peak Energy blog is a bit more upbeat about our prospects than The Oil Drum, so perhaps I should follow it for my own sanity.
It seems the over-riding answer for us is in electricity and batteries. Both come with their drawbacks; however, they are probably more sustainable than the internal combustion engine.
