The 5 Worst ‘Alternative’ Energy Sources...

May 24, 2014 Posted by

[Translate]   From The Daily Green: Everyone agrees we’re in an energy crisis, and everyone agrees we have to wean ourselves from foreign oil. General Motors sent its fuel-sipping Chevrolet Volt on a 1,776-mile drive from Austin, Texas to New York City, where it arrived on Independence Day last year. “Freedom from what?” I asked a Chevy representative. “It has multiple meanings,” he said. Indeed it does. There are a lot of ways to wean ourselves from OPEC crude, but unfortunately a lot of them have unforeseen problems—the cure could be worse than the disease. Let’s examine some energy alternatives and the seemingly insurmountable problems they face: Photos and captions courtesy of The Daily Green.   Oil Shale 1  of  7 PLAY FULLSCREEN ZOOM SHARE THIS SLIDE There’s a huge energy reserve located right...

Apr 3, 2014 Posted by

[Translate] The Huffington Post   Bruce Friedrich Become a fanSenior Policy Director, Farm Sanctuary Posted: 04/02/2014 9:55 am EDT Updated: 04/02/2014 5:59 pm EDT ASSOCIATED PRESS When most Americans think about organic meat or eggs, they picture animals on small farms, allowed to root in the soil, feel sun on their backs, and engage in their natural behaviors. What they don’t picture is tens of thousands of hens crammed into massive sheds with no access to soil and extremely limited outdoor access. Unfortunately, the USDA stamped its seal of approval on the latter scenario by refusing to implement its own advisory board’s animal welfare recommendations, which would have created a level playing field for the hundreds of small organic farms that were the basis for the standards.
