10 Steps in 10 Years to 100 Percent Renewable Power

Staff, Post Carbon Institue

On July 17th, 2008, Vice President Al Gore challenged the nation to produce 100% of its electricity from renewable sources within 10 years. Post Carbon Institute has responded to Gore's challenge by putting forward a new plan: "10 Steps in 10 Years for 100 Percent Renewable Power." The plan shows how we can make Gore's vision a reality, with a keen understanding of the roles that energy depletion, the vulnerabilities of the supply chain, and the limits of technology all play.

Get ready for the last oil war

Andrew McKillop, Energy Bulletin

Despite the clear evidence of rising depletion limits on Iranian oil production, Western media continues presenting Iran as having the third or fourth-largest oil reserves in the world. This implies oil export ‘underperformance’, repeating media claim’s of Iraqi oil reserves versus its pumping ‘performance’ in the run-up to invasion in 2003.

As tensions escalate between Iran and the West, Andrew McKillop presents a view on the prospects for conflict.
