Eller estimates a 30% population increase in Knox County, Kentucky in the 1930s. Many Appalachians who returned to the mountains found closed mines and mills and turned to government work programs and public assistance.…

  • Biofuels: Are They The Future?

    whether it is food, water, metals or fuels. It has been determined that if we use up any one of these resources then we will be without forever. Fossil fuels, coal, oil, and natural gas are non-renewable resources. Formed from plant and animals that lived up to 300 million years ago, fossil fuels are found in deposits deep beneath the earth. The fuels are burned to release the chemical energy that is stored within this resource. Energy is essential to our modern technology based society.…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Fossil Fuels

    While most people associate fossil fuels with oil, this category of energy also includes natural gas and coal. Almost 50 percent of America’s electricity is generated from coal burning power plants. These plants burn nearly 1.5 million tons of coal each year. An average 500 megawatt coal burning power plant puts out 3.2 million tons of carbon dioxide each year. This greenhouse gas is the leading pollutant responsible for global warming. It is not just the air pollution that should be of concern.…

    destroying the energy sector. While it has numerous flaws, most significant downside to the CPP is its impact on the energy sector. The bill calls for all energy plants to either upgrade their machinery to meet new CO2 emission regulations, or to shut down in favor of new plants. Seeing as most of the operating energy plants in the US are from the 20th century, it is unrealistic to think that the majority of plants could effectively and frugally overhaul their technologies. Such stringent CO2…

  • Hydraulic Fracturing

    Hydrocarbon production from unconventional reservoirs has transformed the oil and gas industry in North America. The unconventional reservoirs common attribute is that the permeability of the matrix is ultra-low where the permeability often has been improved by natural fractures or induced hydraulic fractures. Hydraulic fracturing creates highly conductive pathways for hydrocarbons from the reservoir into the wellbore. At high pressure, fracturing fluid which includes of proppant, water, and…
