New Year, New Life, New Energy, New Era

A new era of renewable energy

The Gregorian calendar shows that a new year has begun. The Mayan calendar shows a new era. The mankind relies on a new era of renewable energy. All calendars are systems of counting periods of time and these periods are usually synchronized with the cycle of the sun or the moon. Now we’re not just looking at our star as a power source for counting days or growing crops but as an ultimate source for satisfying our increasing electricity needs. Our knowledge improves every day and our technology gets better and better.

The God of Sun – energy for renewable life

Sun is our life

Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and other religions are systems of beliefs and values that determine the behavior of human beings on the planet but although almost all of the religions are based on eternity, none of them have ever been a reason for avoiding death. We are supposed to deal with life while Gods will take care after death.

Competitiveness of oil, coal and renewable energy sources

The power of Nature

The International Energy Agency (IEA) released its annual Medium-Term Coal Market Report where was clear that coal’s weight in the global energy mix continues to rise. The IEA expects that coal demand will increase in every region except in the US, where coal is being pushed out by natural gas.

A matter of energy, matter and energy or just time.

Earth, wind and clouds.

To create something, you need energy and lot of time – to destroy you need seconds and in some cases you don’t need power as for destruction you can use the one accumulated in the system you intend to destroy. Having in mind that many people are scared of so called “Mayan apocalypse” – the conclusion of the 5,125-year “Long Count” Mayan calendar, it is strange why there aren’t such worries about “Industrial apocalypse”?
