  • Transcript

    • 1. TEAM COOL
    • 2. FOSSIL FUELS = POLLUTION
    • 3. “ Pollution from power plants cuts short the lives of nearly 24,000 Americans nationwide every year.”
    • 4. Coal Consumption Increase in Coal = Increase in Pollution
    • 5. China’s coal plants cause 400,000 premature deaths a year (in China)
    • 6. “ 30 percent of childhood asthma is due to environmental exposures”
    • 7. “ Of the largest 1000 fossil fuel-fired power plants in the U.S., 77% are not subject to pollution controls…”
    • 8. “ Today’s typical auto actually releases more global warming emissions than they did 20 years ago.”
    • 9. “ Vehicle exhaust contributes roughly 95 percent of all carbon monoxide emissions nationwide in cities”
    • 10. “ More than 15,000 people are treated annually in hospital emergency rooms for carbon monoxide exposure”
    • 11. “ In one year, a car can produce 4 times its own weight in carbon monoxide”
    • 12.  
    • 13. POLLUTION = GLOBAL WARMING
    • 14.  
    • 15.  
    • 16.  
    • 17. Dependency on Fossil Fuels $
    • 18. Problem
      • The inexpensiveness and easy storage creates our dependence on Fossil Fuels.
    • 19. RENEWABLE ENERGY
    • 20. Alternative Energy Sources
      • Solar Power
      • Fuel Cells
      • Biomass Power
      • Wind Power
      • Wood Energy
      • Geothermal Power
    • 21. An Investment
    • 22. Wind Power
    • 23. “ One proposed wind farm in West Virginia, would cost $300,000,000 to build”
    • 24. “ State-of-the-art wind power plants at excellent sites are generating electricity at less than 5 cents/kWh”
    • 25. Price Cut
      • If an investor-owned utility (IOU) owned and financed the facility instead there could be a 30% reduction in cents/kWh
      • (as low as 3.5 cents/kWh)
    • 26. Solar Energy
    • 27. “ In some physically isolated settings, it can cost a homeowner $10,000 or more to connect to the utility grid solar electricity”
    • 28. “ A large-scale photovoltaic production plant would cost $660 million up-front”
    • 29. Not Economically Beneficial
      • Solar Energy:
      • 22-40 cents per kilowatt-hour
      • Current average :
      • 11 cents per kilowatt-hour
    • 30. Ready Now
    • 31. Wood Pellets
    • 32. “ A typical pellet stove cost about $11.50 per million Btu, a figure that is less than the cost of electric heat”
    • 33. Sawdust Creates Wood Pellets 40 lb. bag is on average $3.00
    • 34.
      • Wood Pellets:
      • Inexpensive
      • Less Storage Space
      • Transportable
      • Comes from Waste
      • Can be Co-Fired
    • 35. Geothermal Energy
    • 36. Geothermal energy is an enormous, underused heat and power resource
    • 37.
      • “ Many homeowners could spend from $35 to $70 less per month”
      • (on energy bills)
    • 38.
      • “ A 3,000 sq. ft. house in Oklahoma City has a verified average electric bill of $60 per month - using a geothermal heat pump.”
    • 39. 1932 – Fossil Fuels
    • 40. Present Day – Geothermal Energy
    • 41. Geothermal Energy
      • Clean
      • Reliable
      • Homegrown
      • Cost Efficient
      • Available in many locations
    • 42. FROM THE DARK PAST
    • 43. TO THE BRIGHT FUTURE
