Geothermal plants emit 97% less acid rain-causing sulfur compounds than are emitted by fossil fuel power plants. In today's society, humans consume as much as 110 times as much energy per person as early humans. Because large-scale production of oil in shale formations is a relatively recent activity, their long-term productivity is largely unknown. Though American coal is a domestic affair — we don’t need to import it — the fuel has caused substantial air pollution, as well as ground and surface water pollution from mercury and acid rain.

Liquefied Natural Gas: Hearing to Consider Market Developments for U.S. Natural Gas, Including the Approval Process and Potential for Liquefied Natural Gas Exports

Currently, those oil companies do not have access to coastal ports, which limits their ability to sell their product. Because Keystone XL would deliver tar sands to the Gulf Coast – America's largest oil refining and transport hub – it would effectively open the entire U. S. market and international markets to tar sands crude and spell disaster for our climate. The added capacity of Keystone XL and the other two pipelines that have been built recently could more than triple U Clean Tech Nation: How the U.S. Can Lead in the New Global Economy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a [greenhouse gas] cap-and-trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there. … [U]nder my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket, regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses: coal power plants, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations British Small Mines (South).

Many electric generating units are already compliant with these rules; however, existing sources will have up to four years if they need it to comply. Also, the EPA in July 2011 issued the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule, which sets new standards for controls on power plants that cause much of the oxides from nitrogen and sulfur dioxide (which react and become ozone and fine particulate matter) that travel downwind and across state lines OXYGEN AND THE CONVERSION OF.., (Special Publication).

Most of us cook on electricity, gas or some fluid fuel, which is quite clean. However, about half of the households in the world depend on firewood and coal for cooking and heating. It is very hard to burn solid fuels in a clean way, because it is hard to mix them thoroughly with air in simple cooking stoves. In fact, only about 5-18 percent of the energy goes in the pot, the rest is wasted Russia Energy Policy, Laws and Regulations Handbook (World Strategic and Business Information Library). Currently the cost of production is in the $40/bbl range. Capital costs add another $10-$20/bbl, but the expected operating cost for the life of the mine is projected to decline to between $25 and $35 per barrel of SCO. Considering that the going rate for SCO over the past couple of years has been $90-$100/bbl, the project should be highly profitable for the company Spindletop Boom Days (Clayton Wheat Williams Texas Life Series).

Surface mining is used when coal is deposited less than 200 feet below the surface, while underground mines are suitable for coal formations several hundred feet below the earth. The recovery ratio of a coal deposit can be more than 90 percent for surface mines, while less than 40 percent for underground mines. After the coal is mined, it is sent to a preparation plant for minimal processing and then transported to end-users through rail, barge, and/or truck Energy and Economic Theory (World Scientific Series on Energy and Resource Economics).

Because oil shale production has not been profitable in the United States, such estimates do not yield useful information. Instead, calculations of recoverable resources have generally been based on rough estimates of the fraction of the resources in place that can be accessed and recovered, considering mining methods and processing losses.” Previous estimates of the amount of oil shale that is technically recoverable without considering economics are 45 percent (Taylor, 1987) and 55 to 75 percent (Prien, 1974) of the oil in place using room-and-pillar mining methods, whereas estimates of technically recoverable resource using open-pit mining are as much as 80 percent of the oil in place (Taylor, 1987) Expanding Energy Access in Developing Countries: The Role of Mechanical Power.
