  • Legal lookout: competing coal ash proposals

    Depending upon comments the EPA gathers, industry may have to or not have to close out their coal ash containment ponds within five years. On May 4, 2010, EPA issued its long-awaited proposal to manage coal ash – the byproduct of burning coal to generate power. The agency proposed two quite different approaches for regulating coal ash, somewhat to the consternation of critics, who had hoped ...

  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...
