Comments are much appreciated

This poster was my attempt to put resource based fuels in the worst light possible. I think that it's a basic no-brainer that we need to get away from burning resources to create electricity. This can be done now. And this will save our economy.

Hi. I love this creation of yours so much. Currently I'm doing a project on electricity and how to make it greener. Can I include this picture? I will include credits when I show this picture. It would be really appreciated it you allow me to

Hello :) I really loved the set up of this, especially the titles in the form of a wind turbine. Totally awesome :D (<- totally not buttering you up :P)
I'm doing a project for alternative energies and I was wondering if I could include this? I will include credits and disclaimers and it would be really appreciated.

Department of Energy (US) and a few universities. There's a para-citation somewhere on the piece.

oh yea I found it now. are these your assumptions for the projected figures?

Yeah, educated assumptions very conservative. The actual values might be as much as 10% cheaper than the costs I have listed.

yea I'm interested that you didn't include nuclear as part of your energy scheme. Obama seems to be backing the use of nuclear.

nuclear isn't a long term solution.. it requires fuel (uranium) which is subject to market fluctuation and resource depletion

i've read we have about 250 years worth of nuclear fuel at current usage rates. if we could also use plutonium as a fuel then alot more.

you've got 70 years supply of nuclear fuel in your figures. I wonder if that is just for uranium in america, rather than world-wide? I would love grab a copy of your hard data!

Still overall you are right, it's not going to last forever! The other problem is transferring electricity down pylons is inefficient and wasteful, so locally produced energy from renewables makes alot more sense in that way. Retrofitting our existing buildings and urban environments with these technologies is the challenge..

Totally agreed, most of the renewables can be installed into power-end-points (cities, houses,etc) Which would cut down on the drag, that's where the ';power wasted' figure on the end comes from - The nuclear figures come from an inflated future usage rate to try to represent market fluctuations coming from other resources going offline(coal, gas, oil, etc all do this)
