Energy Expert Robert Bryce questions Green future
 
03:17
The oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has intensified the effort to move away from petroleum and other fossil fuels in favor of clean renewable sources of energy -- to power the electric grid as well as transportation. Even major oil companies now tout wind turbines and solar arrays as part of their "green energy" initiatives. But one energy expert, Robert Bryce, argues that the clean energy needed for the near term future will not come from the wind or sun. VOA's Greg Flakus visited Bryce at his home in Austin, Texas and filed this report.

Electric fuel sources for the future: Increasing natural gas and wind; decades later, nuclear
 
01:03
1/1/2011 - http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/01/01/AR2011010102146_pf.html (Excerpts)"Coal is a dead man walkin'," says Kevin Parker, global head of asset management and a member of the executive committee at Deutsche Bank. "Banks won't finance them. Insurance companies won't insure them. The EPA is coming after them. . . . And the economics to make it clean don't work." From 2000 to 2008, construction started on 20 units in 19 plants, according to Edison Electric Institute. Last year, utilities and power-generating companies dropped plans to build 38 coal plants while announcing that they would retire 48 aging, inefficient ones, according to the environmental group Sierra Club. In 2002, there were plans to install 36,000 megawatts of new coal-fired power by 2007. Only one-eighth of that was completed. Deutsche Bank predicts coal's share of electric power generation will tumble further, from 47 percent in 2009 to 34 percent in 2020 and 22 percent in 2030. [The report, 11/2010 136 pages: http://www.dbadvisors.com/content/_media/NaturalGasAndRenewables.pdf According to the Energy Information Administration - http://www.eia.doe.gov/ the US coal mining industry was operating at an anemic 75% of its production capacity in 2009, down from 85% in 2008 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/58623225@N00/5353384910/ That low capacity utilization is the result of a huge drop in demand for coal as well as competition from a burgeoning supply of natural gas. To put the current controversy in perspective, the 2.7 million tons of coal that the Spruce mine would have produced annually represents less than 1% of the unused production capacity at already-permitted US mines. Moreover, the EIA's recently released 2011 Annual Energy Outlook - http://www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/aeo/gas.html projects that coal demand will not return to 2008 levels for the next 15 years. 12/14/2010 - Exelon Corp.is closing three of its coal facilities in Pennsylvania in 2012 and is planning on replacing them with natural gas units. Ditto for Progress Energy, which said it would rather build new gas plants at a cost of $1.5 billion than to modify its older coal fleet at a price of $2 billion. ...tougher regulations on coal will reduce the demand for that product by as much as 30 percent while increasing that of gas by as much as 16 percent over a decade. Among the regulations: tougher rules for nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide and mercury. On the horizon: those involving disposal of coal ash and greenhouse gas emissions. Exelon Chairman and Ceo John W. Rowe forecasts a continual decrease in coal-fueled electricity. http://www.exeloncorp.com/peopleandculture/leadershipteam/rowe.aspx http://www.forbes.com/lists/2009/12/best-boss-09_John-W-Rowe_GKOT.html 12/10/2010 - (Excerpt) In all, the plan calls for Xcel to retire four Denver-area coal-fired power plants and switch the remaining unit to natural gas. The plan also calls for the accelerated phase out of coal-fired electricity at Arapahoe Units 3 and 4 in Denver. Source: Black day for coal industry http://www.thedenverdailynews.com/article.php?aID=10978 Short-Term Energy Outlook - December 7, 2010 Release http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/steo/pub/contents.html#Coal_Markets (Excerpts) Natural gas working inventories end November 2010 at 3.8 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), slightly less than last year's record-setting end-of-November level. EIA expects electricity consumption in 2011 to decline by 0.1 percent and generation from non-fossil-fuel-fired sources to increase. Although natural gas-fired generation also declines, EIA expects that lower electric power sector natural gas prices will keep natural gas competitive as a generation source and lessen its decline. EIA projects that 2011 coal consumption in the electric power sector will decline by 0.2 percent Coal production for the first 6 months of 2010 fell by 3 percent despite a 5-percent increase in U.S. coal consumption. Drawdowns in stocks, particularly in the electric power sector, met the demand increase. EIA projects coal production in 2011 will remain relatively flat as coal consumption shows little change.

But geologists say many fires go unreported, driving the actual number of them closer to 200 across 21 states. USGS (2009): Emissions from Coal Fires and Their Impact on the Environment http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2009/3084/ (Excerpt) In the United States, the combined cost of coal-fire remediation projects, completed, budgeted, or projected by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM), exceeds $1 billion, with about 90% of that in two States—Pennsylvania and West Virginia (Office of Surface Mining Enforcement and Reclamation, 2008; fig. 2). Altogether, 15 States have combined cumulative OSM coal-fire project costs exceeding $1 million, with the greatest overall expense occurring in States where underground coal fires are predominant over surface fires, reflecting the greater cost of extinguishing underground fires. This table by the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) of the Abandoned Mine Lands (AML) reclamation accomplishments (1978-1996) states that 1,245 burning underground fires (in 10 states) and 1,314 burning surface firs (in 21 states had been eliminated. http://www.osmre.gov/Reports/AnnualReport/1996/1996_stat_table13_AMLCoalRecAccomplishments.pdf Distribution and Characteristics of Outcrop Fires in Horizontal Strata in Eastern and Western Coal Providences Bernard R.

The fire still burns underground to this day in Ohio.

See video: http://www.onntv.com/live/content/onnnews/stories/2010/11/22/story-coal-fire-wayne-county.html?sid=102 10/29/2010 http://www.courthousenews.com/2010/10/29/31466.htm (Excerpt) The class adds that any evidence that the fire actually endangered Centralia was "contrived," and that "no court has ever held a hearing to determine whether the fire is, or ever was, a threat," that "certainly it does not threaten Centralia now and is retreating at its worst." 11/4/09 http://news.discovery.com/earth/coal-fire-pollution-global.html (Excerpt) Right now, thousands of coal fires are burning out of control around the world. The fires are heaving untold amounts of mercury, the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) and other pollutants into the air. 4/13/10 http://www.gillettenewsrecord.com/articles/2010/04/13/news/sunday/news01.txt (Excerpt) In fact, the coal on Mooney's land has burned at least three times in the last 100 years. It was the site of the Felix mine, started by the railroad in the late 1800s to supply trains with coal as they rumbled through Campbell County. The underground mine was abandoned in the late 1800s, but wasn't reclaimed. http://www.wsgs.uwyo.edu/coalweb/WyomingCoal/remarkable.aspx 1/31/08 - Video: http://www.clipsyndicate.com/video/play/506262/coal_vein_fire A strange site can be seen from the interstate just west of Mandan. Smoke is coming from the side of this hill. Jim Deutsch with the North Dakota Public Service Commission says the cause of the smoke is a coal vein fire just under the ground. Deutsch expects a large grass fire this past fall ignited the coal that has since continued to burn. He says a grass fire near Watford City in the late nineties sparked about thirty coal vein fires in the area.
