Exxon Putting $170 Million Towards Carbon Capture Technology

Exxon is not known for being a friend to the environment, but for the past couple of decades they have been researching and implementing carbon capture and storage technology. Now, they're investing $170 million towards furthering what they've already accomplished.

The oil company will spend $70 million on a project to capture six million metric tons of fake viagra prescription emissions per year at their La Barge, Wyo. natural gas plant, two million more tons than they are already capturing every year. Another $100 million will be spent testing new technologies for removing carbon from natural gas by 2010.

Now this doesn't make them heroes. They still do enough damage to negate the good and carbon capture and storage is still controversial, but this does put them way ahead of other companies who will be clamoring for the same technology if the new administration puts a price on carbon emissions. Also, they could spend more. This is Exxon. If they wanted to invest in capturing all of the emissions they produce, they probably have the money to do it. But ultimately, if carbon capture and storage turns out to purchase cialis soft tabs be truly viable, their research could end up helping in the fight against climate change.

Malaysia Using Satellites to Protect Forests

Malaysia's forests have been dwindling at a rapid rate. During the 1990s, 13 percent of its forests disappeared, with illegal logging as a major culprit. Now, the country's government is fighting back - with satellites.

The satellites will capture images to create a forest inventory, allowing the government to supervise any logging and to determine if it's illegal. The government hopes that in addition to stopping illegal logging the "eye in the sky" program will also help prevent air pollution by detecting forest fires and illegal land clearing.

Along with the program, the Malaysian government has pledged to be more cautious when approving logging licenses so that the country's timber will remain a viable export without negative criticisms and without contributing to tramadol medication online global warming.

The program is currently in place in the western peninsular part of Malaysia with plans to cover the usefull link buy cialis soft tabs entire nation. With so many of the world's forests falling from illegal logging, it's wonderful to see a country taking real action to prevent it. I hope this works.

Panasonic to Buy Sanyo, Focus on Solar and Battery Businesses

Last Friday, Panasonic announced that it was buying Sanyo for $9 billion, a deal that Panasonic hopes will launch the company's solar and battery businesses. Sanyo will become a part of the Panasonic group and bring with it their large solar PV business.

As an example of Sanyo's commitment to solar energy, the company plans to build a 70MW solar manufacturing facility in Oregon this coming year. Panasonic hopes to capitalize on projects like these, as well as expand into crystalline silicon solar cells and to develop next-generation solar cells.

Along with a large expansion into the solar business, Panasonic will be making "active investments" in lithium-ion batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles. Panasonic hopes the collaboration with Sanyo will bring lucrative contracts with large automakers.

This is a smart move on Panasonic's part. The tide is lavitra online no prescription turning in the electronics sector and businesses need to levitra canadian start moving in a greener direction and expanding their offerings. Consumers have made it known that they want more eco-friendly products and eco-saving innovation. This is clearly the path to long-term success for electronics companies.

"Clean Coal" Coalition Made $57B Last Year...With Dirty Coal

The ACCCE, a coalition of indian viagra generic coal and energy companies that have been paying for a deluge of advertising discussing the merits of clean coal technology made a LOT of money last year. That was last year.

Since the very first dollar was spent on carbon sequestration technology, that "clean coal" coalition has spent about 6% of that money acftually doing research on we like it cialis sales in canada carbon storage. And the VAST majority of that comes from two projects, one from Duke Energy and the other from Mississippi Power.

The scary and true thing about coal companies is that they have never spent money on research unless they were required to. The only significant research undertakings of the coal industry were spurred by the clean air act.

Carbon storage is one of the most important aspects of our clean energy future, but the companies that have the ability to research and implement it have no reason to do so. So we're stuck with renewables (likely a more expensive option) being researched and developed far more quickly. Just one more reason why old industries die hard.

There is really no surprise here. Energy companies will not spend money cleaning up their act unless they are forced to. And while the $45 M they've spent on advertising (and $125M they've spent on lobbying congress) is a pretty strong force for the status quo, I'd like to think that true progress, and clean technology will win the day.

Diesel Trucks Will Soon Signal When Emission Systems Fail

The EPA mandated last week that diesel trucks and buses must be manufactured with dashboard lights that signal when emission control systems malfunction. This national ruling follows a California state ruling three months ago requiring the same warning.

Before now, there has been very little to help the cheap generic cialis enforcement of find cheap cialis online pollution limits in trucks and buses, so this small step towards pollution monitoring is a very important one. Even better news is that California has a lower threshold for emissions than the national limit, and it's expected that all warning systems will be built around the lower limit so that they can be used in any state.

The EPA was given permission to publish the rule without a final White House review since the administration was busy with "other things" in their final days. The rule has become a single glimmer in a pile of environmentally-unfriendly eleventh-hour rules.
