MooPig's Tech Coroner :: "Demise of the Fossil Fuel Industry?"

[Picture LINK] " ... We have now passed Peak Oil which began back in 1979 (some disagree with this date but all concede we have past peak oil) the decline is unavoidable. Few can conceive of what lies ahead. Complacency reigns. By far the great majority of people, including those at the very top in all strata of society, including governments, industry, and the media, will be caught unawares. ... "

Retrieved by Pat Darnell | June, 2012 | Bryan TX "After the birth of our first grandchild (Dougie), my wife Karen and I participated in the March on Blair Mountain last June, we were arrested in front of the White House on August 22 as part of the Tar Sands Action, we were part of the Ring Around the White House in November and we haven't looked back.  Little Dougie needs to grow up in a world freed from the tyranny of fossil fuels.  There is something about rubbing elbows with climate activists of all stripes, all ages, all races, and from every region of the world that lets us know that we aren't in this alone, that there is hope."

The real story is about our Power Grid and it's strengths and frailty. How safe is our electricity that flows to, well, flows to everywhere?

Does each person in fact have the ability in today's tech world mechanics to actually produce his own electrical power source? And does each one of us have the right to this technology?

These are the questions MooPig will be asking for the next few days. But it all starts with the raw material of Power, doesn't it? Fossil fuels.

One would hope that in the current climate change situation world wide, that a common goal is to limit the emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere. This site,, is about limiting the CO2 index to 350 ppm, and below. We are currently at 392 ppm CO2:
" ... At, we're building a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis and push for policies that will put the world on track to get to 350 ppm. ( "
World Politics?! YIKES! Why is it always some political football? Oh, well, we give up. What happened to the decision making process?


WKPDA Footnotes:
In cities and towns of North America, the grid tends to follow the classic radially fed design. A substation receives its power from the transmission network, the power is stepped down with a transformer and sent to a bus from which feeders fan out in all directions across the countryside. These feeders carry three-phase power, and tend to follow the major streets near the substation. As the distance from the substation grows, the fanout continues as smaller laterals spread out to cover areas missed by the feeders. This tree-like structure grows outward from the substation, but for reliability reasons, usually contains at least one unused backup connection to a nearby substation. This connection can be enabled in case of an emergency, so that a portion of a substation's service territory can be alternatively fed by another substation.
