Ethanol, now is the time!
General Motors recently announced a policy to encourage it's employees to use Ethanol. It also announced that it was encouraging fuel companies to provide more Ethanol pumps at fuel stations. This is a good indication that even the most traditional industries, see the merits of this alternative fuel.
Environmental Solutions and BBAA LLC are doing national work on ethanol projects. With over 100 new ethanol plants projected to be built in the next few years, we have developed special expertise and research, and are doing consulting, environmental reports, appraisals and even finding financing and investors for ethanol projects!
Ethanol, takes farm crops such as corn, wheat, or even grasses, and converts the crops into fuel for vehicles. More and more people are converting to Ethanol, and more gas stations are starting to provide ethanol pumps.
Why should you consider Ethanol?
Oil from small producers, we need to start making friends again!
A few months ago GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES predicted that the price of oil would rise to unprecedented levels. It hit new highs in 2006 and some believe the price could reach $100 per barrel. The impact on economies of developed nations would be major.
Why? Because the world supply and demand for oil among the world’s giant oil nations is a perfectly “balanced” market. That means, that buyers are buying every single barrel that is produced, and sellers have eager buyers for every barrel they can bring to market.
But, when there is a problem in the world, whether it be natural disaster, a bomb blast that disrupts transportation, or a political change that lowers production, this “perfectly balanced” market has potential to run askew. Because of the resultant increased demand, vs. supply.
With the disastrous situation in Iraq, an uncertain situation in Iran, sabers rattling in North Korea, plus the daily increasing demand for oil by India and China, the world oil market becomes a dicey proposition.
Thus, now a collection of small countries largely inignored or off of the radar screen of public media, have found that their “oil” is like the “deciding vote” or the “swing vote” in the world oil economy. Without these “little guys” and their combined production, oil prices could easily climb to historic highs and seriously impact the world economy.
Wind and Environment, profitable for business!
Wind Power, Profitable and Good
Environmental issues are becoming more business oriented, as business and governments learn that clean environmental policies have positive economic implications. One excellent example is that of Whole Foods Market Inc., a giant food chain in the USA. It announced that it will rely on wind energy for all of its electricity needs, making it the largest corporate user of renewable energy in the United States. The Austin Texas-based company said it is purchasing 458,000 megawatt-hours of wind energy credits a year - enough to power 44,000 homes annually - from Renewable Choice Energy of Boulder, Colo.
The decision follows the publicly traded company's mission of environmental stewardship without losing sight of the bottom line, Whole Foods regional president Michael Besancon said. "It's a sales driver rather than a cost," he said. "All of those things we do related to our core values: help drive sales, help convince a customer to drive past three or four other supermarkets on the way to Whole Foods." The company began rolling out wind energy for all 173 stores in the United States and Canada last month. Prior to that, 20 percent of its electricity had been from renewable sources. As of Oct. 1, 2005, Whole Foods was the eighth- largest user of renewable energy among U.S. corporations and governmental agencies. Based on those figures, Tuesday's announcement would put Whole Foods ahead of the U.S. Air Force (312,416 megawatt-hours) and corporate leader Johnson & Johnson (241,398 megawatt-hours), in using environmentally sensitive energy, according to the EPA. This trend is also being repeated by governments.
In Mongolia, the government realized that it’s natural forest resource of trees that produce Pinion nuts were a valuable resource, and passed regulations to limit the exploitation and destruction of these forests by foreign entities, particularly China. China has been active in trying to “monopolize” the crop of Pinion nuts, as well as being an avid consumer of forests outside of China. For example, some say that 30% of the forests in the region of Tibet have been cut down by Chinese, and shipped to the growing metropolitan areas of China.
Mongolia has also shown interest in preserving the purity of its rivers, and has even addressed air pollution issues, realizing that the costs saved in lives and medical expenses are an economic and human issue that must be considered. Nations around the world are trying to take steps to save their environmental treasures, and corporations are starting to follow government leadership.
