Solar energy is the use of direct sunlight, the solar energy arriving on Earth. Direct sunlight can be used for two main purposes: for heating and cooling and for the generation of electricity.

U.S. energy production, especially oil and natural gas from shale, is booming and expected to continue to grow. Consequently, this bounty is pushing up energy exports – including coal that is displaced by natural gas in power generation – and refined products that are not regulated.

Coal is a readily combustible rock containing more than 50% by weight and more than 70% by volume of carbonaceous material, including inherent moisture.

Hydroelectric power is, as of 2005, the second largest source of electricity in the world (18%) after coal, which supplies about 38%, but ahead of nuclear power, natural gas, and oil, which contribute 17, 16, and 10%, respectively, of the total generated electricity.

Gas hydrates (also called gas clathrates) are icelike, crystalline solids composed of natural-gas molecules, principally methane, trapped in rigid crystalline cages formed by frozen water molecules.

I am reflecting on this past year of the DEG with my feet propped up, iPad in my lap, a cold libation in hand – and I am smiling.
