The United States Department of Energy, under the Office of Policy and International Affairs, has formulated initiatives to address the problems regarding energy consumption and foreign oil dependence in the United States. One of which is "Climate VISION" or Voluntary Innovative Sector Initiatives: Opportunities Now…

Introduction

In addition to DOE's efforts to reduce carbon emissions, one approach of the Office of Fossil Energy is to work on sequestering greenhouse gases that "might one day virtually eliminate concerns over emissions of greenhouse gases from fossil energy systems. Carbon capture and sequestration systems could store, convert, or recycle greenhouse gases, preventing them from building up the atmosphere." Another initiative called Advance Energy Initiative of the agency is to empower the development in maintaining ecological balance to offer the people clean, cost-efficient, and healthy energy services.
Given all the information, it does not suggest the alternative of conserving energy, because only the reduction of GHG emissions has been emphasized. However, DOE plans to reduce global warming gases based on the agency's initiative to partner with volunteers, and the strategies formed to deal with the ecological problem. Plans such as these can be a good alternative to the Kyoto Protocol because they share the same goal to reduce GHG emissions.
One suggestion that I can offer the U.S. ...

Ethanol is it worth the true Cost
Though many have seen ethanol as a potential long-term solution to global energy concerns (Shimada, 2002), there are numerous shortcomings associated with increased dependency on this energy source (Newman 2008). The current ramifications of a shift to bio-fuel production include a rise in the cost of food production as well as an increase in food shortages in certain parts of the world (World…
Corn-based Ethanol Production
There has been a particular concern on the negative impact of corn-based ethanol production on the price of corn. The impact of the ethanol production has gone beyond the food prices (corn) influence threshold to the entirety of the agriculture sector. From a macro perspective, the impact has rippled beyond the precincts of the US into global fuel and food production and distribution realms.…

The Energy Problem
"We think that the recent run-up in gasoline prices has significantly increased the likelihood that we will see another gas crisis in the near future. This is regardless of whether there is a true shortage, or if it's just panic buying that takes hold. Don't be surprised to see gasoline rationing being put in place as soon as this occurs, whether it is imposed by the retailers, or by the…

The productions costs of ethanol
Ethanol is better known as ethyl alcohol is basically a flammable, volatile and a colorless liquid. The drug is found in alcoholic drinks, people commonly call it alcohol but many of them aren't quite aware that it is called Ethanol. The same is also extensively used in perfumes, medicines and for many other uses. This paper will throw light upon the production cost of Ethanol and how does its…
