    Coal Changing with the Times

    The world is moving away from coal and leaning into the use of natural gas. China is cutting back on coal exports, while across the pond, America is rapidly shutting down coal plants. The U.S. and China are the third and first largest coal consumers in the world. These countries are looking to natural gas because it is cleaner, cheaper,…

    The U.S. Increases LNG Exports

    Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been cooled to -260 degrees Fahrenheit, bringing it to a liquid for better shipping and storage. Natural gas goes through a liquefaction and purification process at LNG plants. These are host to generally one or more “trains” that convert the natural gas into the odorless, compact liquid. The world is increasingly…

    Natural Gas Hitting Records in the U.S.

    Natural gas, like other fossil fuels, is formed from the remains of plants and animals that had millennia to decompose. This organic matter is compressed by layers of sand, silt, and rock. It is made up of various components, such as hydrocarbon liquids, carbon dioxide, and water vapor. But the most dominant component is methane.  Ten countries account for more…

    Upon electing President Donald Trump, the United States was told it was moving toward self-sustaining energy dominance. Coming off the Obama administration — which passed environmental rules such as the Clean Power Plan and rollbacks on land leasing for fossil fuels — it would seem this president is taking the “crisis” out of global climate concerns and is instead leaning…

    Wind Power and Fossil Fuels

    You may have seen the massive wind turbines driving on rural highways or images of these energy behemoths constructed in the ocean. Utilizing the wind’s kinetic energy, blades collect air and lift causing them to turn a drive shaft. This rotator is when electricity is generated. However, wind farmer operators must consider where is the best place to harvest this…

    Fossil Fuel Reserves

    Timelines laid out in BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy estimate the years that coal, natural gas, and crude oil will be exhausted via current extraction and production rates. Coal reserves will “run out” in 2169, oil in 2066 and natural gas will be exhausted two years later in 2068. The answer to how much time civilization has left to…

    Solar Power and Fossil Fuels

    Those who criticize the use of fossil fuels because of the damage done to the environment often applaud renewable energy for its little-to-no emissions and pollutants. Though the amount of radiation to hit the Earth’s surface per hour is more than the total energy consumed per year, solar power is not as popular as water, wind, or biofuels as an…
