    In April 2010 a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it. As the year anniversary was approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking. So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.

The resources that are being used for generation of energy have to be efficient in terms of economics and emitting least pollutants. Energy derived from fossil fuels resources (fossil fuel energy) is primarily utilized for generation of electricity, industrial production and other day-to-day necessities of the life. Petroleum i.e. oil, natural gas (primarily methane) and coal are the main constituents of the fossil fuel. Energy derived from geothermal resources contributes to about 0.3% with electricity generating capacity of global energy consumption. Primary geothermal provinces are located in tectonic regions are confined to rims of the Pacific Ocean; the region characterized by most active earthquakes and volcanoes and is popularly called the Ring of Fire. Another important energy resource that is extensively promoted is the use of nuclear energy. Publication Date: October 11, 2010 | ISBN-10: 3642142338 | ISBN-13: 978-3642142338 | Edition: 1st Edition. Naresh Kumar Thakur (Author), Sanjeev Rajput (Author) The energy produced by the fission process is about millions of times the energy produced by the combustion of an atom of carbon from coal. Different forms of energy associated with natural resources such as sun (solar energy) and oceans. They are quite extensive and inexhaustible and considered as renewable form of energy. The kinetic energy associated with wind, tides, oceanic waves can be utilized to generate electricity. The potential and kinetic energy associated with hydrothermal means and being utilized for generation of electricity works out to be most cost effective and least pollutant.

        Megapolis 2026 Energiset kaupungit on urbaani festivaali, jossa etsitään kaupunkilaisia ratkaisuja ympäristöongelmiin. Maailman kaupunkien osuus energiankulutuksesta on 75 % ja hiilidioksidipäästöistä kaupungit tuottavat 80 %. Maailman energiaresurssit käyvät kuitenkin koko ajan niukemmiksi ja erityisen vaikeassa asemassa ovat kehitysmaiden suurkaupungit, joiden energiajärjestelmät ovat puutteellisia. Energia tuntuu usein etäiseltä, kuitenkin energia on läsnä arjessamme päivittäin: miten ja mitä syömme, miten liikumme ja mikä saa iPodimme soimaan. Kun katsoo ympärilleen voi huomata, että maailma vilisee esimerkkejä kestävästä energiantuotannosta, matalaenergia-asumisesta, vähähiilisestä liikkumisesta ja vastuullisesta kuluttamisesta. Megapolis –festivaaleilla pohditaan innostavia ja energisiä tulevaisuuden ratkaisuja 15. lokakuuta 2011. www.megapolis2026.org www.dodo.org
