I am just wondering why I could not connect to the URLs of the Biodiesel, Biomass, and the other Renewable Energy in this site (no offense Marc) but I just didn’t know what went wrong..honestly. 🙂
But anyway, I just would like to say some few good things on this “Alternative Energy” issue which I strongly believed should be given importance by our Government.
For the sake of those who are not as advocate as I am regarding this issue, here are some facts for your perusal: 🙂
What is renewable energy?
Energy derived from resources that are regenerative or for all practical purposes can not be depleted. Types of renewable energy resources include moving water (hydro, tidal and wave power), thermal gradients in ocean water, biomass, geothermal energy, solar energy, and wind energy. Municipal solid waste (MSW) is also considered to be a renewable energy resource.
I remember during those times when I was still jobless (right after graduating in college) and so I had so much time watching my favorite channel (The Discovery Channel). Once I saw this program hosted by some scientists and they were talking about our oil deposits that will run out or deplete (of course based on our current rate of using it) in 50 to 100 years.
If this is true, then we must start disseminating infos and, in any way possible, try to influence our friends in the Congress and Senate to pass a bill about making and using other alternative sources of Energy. And of of course one way to effectively do it is thru blogging. 🙂
(For the Alternat1ve Energy entry)
Generally speaking (or writing in this case 🙂 ), I find it very informative simply because it has almost everything about renewable energy. It has biogas, biomass, biodiesel, solar energy, wind energy, wave energy, and other related topics.
I also like the site because it gives out important infos concerning the Philippines when it comes to actual and potential projects specifically the Jatropha Biodiesel Plant to be set up in Gensan, the Ethanol and Biodiesel refinery to be set up in Leyte by one interested oil company from Japan.
Yet there are some things I was hoping to see but didn’t..I hope next time Marc will feature another important form of renewable energy – Thermal Gradients in ocean water. And I hope to see some links on other bio-plants other than Jatropha because as far as I know there are few more plants that are suitable here in the Philippines for commercial plantations. 🙂
But all in all, I strongly recommend this blog of Marc. Good site! 🙂
