Humans and Energy: Crash Course World History 207
In which Stan Muller subs for John Green and teaches you about energy and humanity. Today we discuss the ideas put forth by Alfred Crosby in his book, Children of the Sun. Historically, almost all of the energy that humans use has been directly or indirectly generated by the sun, whether that be food energy from plants, wind energy, direct solar energy, or fossil fuels. Stan looks into these different sources, and talks about how humanity will continue to use energy in the future as populations grow and energy resources become more scarce.

The End Of The Oil Age, How Much Is Left And What Will Happen When We Run Out
Imagine the day when the world is turned up side down, when mankind is plunged in to a mad max style future, a dystopian future of war, famine and financial chaos. This is the day when the worlds most precious resource runs out. **REMEMBER TO SUBSCRIBE FOR MUCH MORE TO COME** FʘLLʘW THE VENDOR 101 Subscribe - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheVendor101 Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+TheVendor101 Twitter - https://twitter.com/thevendor101 What we use it for- Oil is the life blood that is pumped though our modern world, with out it we could not fly to popular holiday destinations, travel to work in the comfort of our vehicles or maybe even watch this video on YouTube, plus many more little perks of modern life. We rely on oil to power many applications within our lives and as of early 2015, the IEA Oil Market Report forecast the average demand would be 34 billion barrels of oil for the year. At this rate, how long can we go on pumping oil out of the ground without exhausting our supplies? Were does it come from- Oil is formed according to a leading theory, by dead organic material accumulating at the bottom of the oceans, riverbeds or swamps. Over time this material was gradually covered by sediment, Millions of years of this process caused the sediment to grow heavier and heavier, resulting heat and pressure which transforms the organic layer into a dark and waxy substance known as kerogen. Some types of kerogen gradually changed in to oil or natural gas and collectively these are known as hydrocarbons or fossil fuels. This process according to scientists probably takes at least a million years. How much is left- According to the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, there are 1.3 trillion barrels of proven oil reserve left in the world's major fields, which at present rates of consumption should last 40 years. This has meant that governments and oil companies have been forced to look for sources of oil in more difficult locations, such as the deep sea. However this requires intensive and costly processing. The challenge facing engineers is extracting the oil and gas from these deep locations. At present much of it is so difficult to get at that it actually takes more energy to extract it than it gives back in use. So there is plenty more oil available, it's just really hard to get to and find. What will happen to the world- Some peak oil theorists believe that we have already passed the point of maximum oil production, what is clear is that oil is getting harder to find and extract, and this is reflected in rising prices. Those price increases encourage users to decrease consumption and inventors to create alternatives. Most likely, petrol and diesel use will disappear by legal mandate once a clearly-superior alternative is developed. But what if a superior alternative isn't developed? What if we run out of oil, natural gases and run out of time to build nuclear power plants. What if we run out of energy to fuel our modern society's? What will happen to man kind? Well life as we know it would come to an end. All the everyday items made from oil would no longer be produced, Virtually all transport would stop and so would nearly all manufacturing. This would result in Food production coming to a halt, millions would freeze in colder climates and masses of people would be unemployed, meaning that they could not purchase the increasing costly price of the most basic foods. Eventually millions upon millions would starve to death. The replacements- However, thanks to extremely clever and persistent inventors, there are many other replacement energy technologies that are being used and are being developed. Hopefully, by the time we do finally run out of oil, then we will already have a superior alternative to the black gold.

Energy Consumption
023 - Energy Consumption In this video Paul Andersen explains how humans have consumed energy through history and may consume energy in the future. Sources of energy have included food, animals, wood, wind, coal, oil, and natural gas. However non-renewable energy source eventually lead to an energy crisis as supplies go down or prices go up. Humans will hopefully use more renewable energy sources in the future. Do you speak another language?

Are We Running Out of Resources?
Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

Resource Intelligence Country Report: Mexico
Did you know that Mexico is the #1 producer of smart phones in the world? And 82% of Mexicans over 14 have a cell phone? Or that high tech manufacturing represents almost 20% of Mexico's GDP? And that they are the 2nd largest producers of TV's in the world, and the largest producer of white goods? Literally one of every 3 fridges, stoves and washing machines is manufactured in Mexico! Here is another shocker -- Mexico produces more automobiles than Canada or the USA. Welcome to Country Reports. Because location risk is the biggest gamble in mining, assumptions can be expensive either by being too optimistic or pessimistic. Our objective with this program is to help investors understand jurisdictional or location risk. So come with us today to Mexico where in the next 10 minutes we'll show you that Mexico is no sleepy hollow of sombreros and burritos -- it is dynamic, and it's changing fast. And in Mexico, mining is embraced as an important source of jobs, revenue and national identity. Mining Policy: Laying the groundwork for change. In Mexico, mining is big and it is efficient. Mining policies pertaining to permitting and taxation are largely centralized—they are federal responsibilities. This has been great for investment in the mining industry. Here's an example. SilverCrest Mines, Mexico's newest producer, drilled its first drill hole just four years ago and is now in production. It could generate up to $30 million in profits annually, sufficient to repay the company's total capital costs in under a year. Here's another example. During construction, Goldcorp's Penasquito operation was the biggest construction project in Mexico. It cost an astounding $1.6 billion dollars to build. Its size is monumental. Each and every day 120,000 tonnes of rock are processed. Penasquito has a mine life of 22 years based on current resources. Each pit is a kilometer in width. The crushed ore conveyor is over a kilometer long. But these foreign owned projects were not always able to operate so efficiently in Mexico. In 2003, there were 74 foreign mining companies operating in Mexico. At last count there were 263. How did this growth happen? Changes to mining law in 1990 led to a giant leap forward for mining investment in Mexico. Foreign capital was finally authorized to participate in 100% of the stock of mining corporations. Today foreign companies work under the same taxation rules as domestic miners and pay 34% tax on distributed profits only, not on reinvested profits. To further entice miners, Mexico's 15 per cent value added tax has been eliminated in all stages of gold mining. Also, mining companies are exempt from the country's asset tax for the first five years. There are even diesel fuel consumption tax credits for miners in Mexico.

Fuel Ratings & Testing for 2015 Cars | Strickland's
http://www.stricklands.com/ ▶ New for all 2015 Model Year Vehicles in Canada. Video courtesy of Natural Resources Canada. The government has changed the vehicle fuel consumption testing. These are the fuel ratings found on the EnerGuide label for every new vehicle. The new and improved test will consist of the 5 following steps: 1. Driving in cold weather 2. Driving in hot weather with the A/C in use 3. High speed & rapid acceleration. 4. Stop & go city driving 5. Driving on highways and rural roads. These 5 tests are designed to better reflect what its like to drive a car in Canada 12 months of the year. As a result you can expect fuel consumption ratings to jump by 10% - 20% & not because vehicle manufacturers are producing less efficient vehicles.

Energy Efficiency: Our Best Source of Clean Energy
Increases in energy efficiency are an often-forgotten component of our shift to clean energy and reduced carbon emissions. Higher prices triggered by the 1973 oil embargo caused America to drastically change how it used energy. The ensuing gains in efficiency had more of an impact on America’s energy consumption than all of the growth in solar, wind, geothermal, natural gas and nuclear energy combined.

Nuclear Energy Explained: Risk or Opportunity
Please Read Below For More Information Anything with the word nuclear next to it usually comes with a fair bit of misunderstanding. Hopefully this video demystifies the process of how nuclear fuels are turned into electricity and how we can use them in combination with renewables in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects on the climate that come with high levels of them. Of course, there are many things that have been left out this video as nuclear energy, just as with any other source, has many different factors that need to be taken into account when making decisions. In order to fully understand the situation and make decisions, I highly recommend that you do some research of your own on the topic, rather than simply base your opinion on a four-minute YouTube video. It should also be noted that this video has been made from the perspective of the United States in general.

Tonsil® - Efficient purification of edible oils based on natural resources
What has a volcanic eruption to do with a juicy roast steak? The connection between volcanic ash and the golden yellow edible oil in the kitchen -- widely used for roasting, deep frying or for salads -- is not immediately apparent. What they have in common is the purifying effect of so-called bleaching earths based on the natural resource bentonite, one of these clay minerals which were able to form over the millennia under certain pressure and temperature conditions from deposits of volcanic ash in subterranean deposits. It is used to produce the highly active bleaching earth Tonsil® which gently removes all undesired accompanying substances and dyestuffs as well as impurities from edible oil whilst preserving the nutrients, thereby creating ideal preconditions for healthy consumption and a clear appearance. http://www.clariant.com/corpnew/internet.nsf/vwWebPagesByID/932E5D2619BF1B8CC12579EC002B7F5A?OpenDocument

The Ark (2017) | Enter The Pitch
In the distant future, the world has become over-populated. As a result, the human race has become greedy and abused Earth’s natural resources, causing the planet to become unsustainable for humans to inhabit. An increase in pollution and fossil fuel consumption has caused the Earth’s ice glaciers to melt, causing a deep freeze and threatening the existence of all living matter on Earth. The remaining humans are fighting for their survival by any means possible. The Ark, is a safe haven set up by a group of survivors of the freeze. Inside, it contains a wealth of resources, food, clean water and medicine but only accessible to worthy individuals who are willing to contribute to the community and bear an ID band, earnt from recruiters of The Ark. The story follows a 12-year expedition of an unworthy individual, Jake, attempting to gain access to The Ark. After discovering a lost journal on his travels, it describes the journey to the security and resources available at the safe haven of The Ark. Jake has a hidden past, but will he be worthy enough to be welcomed into the Ark community and if unsuccessful will he risk it all for his own survival?

Examples of Renewable Resources
Visit us/get in touch at: http://wastersblog.com/1653/examples-of-renewable-resources/ We provide Examples of Renewable Resources: A renewable resource is one that replaces itself normally at a rate equal to or higher than human usage. The term normally refers to renewable energies, which are self-sustaining in time. There are 5 primary kinds of renewable resources, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass. Many countries today are increasing their use of renewable energies to change fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, which take thousands and occasionally millions of years to change themselves, making them non-renewable resources. Examples of non-renewable resources are fossil fuels, like coal, oil, natural gas and soil, rocks, minerals. As soon as they have been gotten rid of from a mine or removed it takes a very long time indeed for them to re-form. We have actually counted on fossil fuels for our energy requires because, traditionally, these fuels have actually been reasonably inexpensive, and rewarding for designers. With increasing fuel costs, issues about ecological effect and growing political concerns about oil providers, renewable energy is acquiring in importance. Renewable resources are natural sources that can not be diminished. Examples consist of solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and geothermal. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and even clean-burning gas do not exist in unrestricted supply. One day they will be gone. In additional to unending availability, renewable resources create less environmental impact, specifically pollution. Generally speaking renewable resources can be categorized as natural renewable resources and non-organic renewable resources. Plant and animal species are the examples of natural renewable resources whereas gases like oxygen and water are the examples of non-organic renewable resources. Birds or animals getting extinct have now become a regular function. Although some species have actually disappeared from the earth's surface due to natural tragedies, most of them have actually become extinct due to excessive hunting and poaching. Examples of renewable resources are fresh water, fish, and soil. Non-renewable resources such as oil and minerals are irreplaceable, and they do not effectively regrow once they are consumed. Renewable energy describes power created by a renewable source. When the energy is generated, the resource is not exhausted or consumed. They are naturally replenished, and can either be managed so that they last permanently, or their supply is so enormous human beings can never ever meaningfully deplete them. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not release carbon dioxide as a byproduct into the atmosphere. As the quantity of nonrenewable fuel source resources in the world lowers, it is ending up being increasingly essential to discover and make use of alternative fuels. In the US, Alternative Energy is made use of and in general it implies the like renewable, implies any thing besides deriving energy through Fossil Fuel combustion. Alternative energy is likewise a natural deposit ends up being a renewable resource when it is replaced by natural processes at a rate which is quicker than its consumption rate by human beings. Solar radiation, tides, winds and hydroelectricity are the sources which are of lasting accessibility. Renewable resources may include mean products like wood, paper, and leather, if their harvesting is carried out in a sustainable way. So, to summarize, we will certainly just say that renewable resource is a natural resource that can replaced with biological or other natural processes and renewed after a long time. They are part of natural environment however they are threatened by commercial developments and development. Solar radiation, biomass, tides, geothermal, and winds are examples of renewable resources.

Electric Planes Are Coming
Electric Planes are the future Who would have thought, only 10 years ago thinking or even having an electric car was a remote possibility, Tesla was about to launch Roadster and talks of electric car revolution was just crazy talk. As the saying goes, one swallow doesn’t make a spring. Well in this case, one swallow, or 2500 Tesla Roadsters indeed means spring for electric cars. 4 years after Tesla Roadster was launched, production of Tesla Model S started and the rest is history, today over million electric cars are being driven on our roads, all EU car makers plan to go completely electric by 2025 and even some of the most unexpected countries are turning their backs on petrol cars, India plans to go all electric by 2030. You could say electric car revolution has truly taken place and there’s no going back, electric cars are here to stay. Electric Cars, Electric Trucks and Lories, electric bikes, why not electric planes ? Imagine a world where pollution is a thing of the past, bio-plastics that degrade within weeks of being used, fossil fuels a thing of the past, nature that is clean of toxic and environmental waste created by incessant human consumption of natural resources, and above in our skies fly electric planes that do not pollute air we breathe. The fact the things are moving in the right direction can be seen on a daily basis, once most polluting segment of mass transport might soon also join the electric revolution, and things do look encouraging, in not too distant future electric planes will be the next big thing. Recently EasyJet and US based start-up, Wright electric, agreed to develop first commercial passenger aircraft, capable of 540km range, powered purely with electric propulsion. The company Wright Electric hopes to have passenger aircraft ready by 2030, with EasyJet keen to operate 150 such aircraft with in decade from first electric aircraft service entry. Although, it is not clear if Wright Electric is working on new battery technology or intends to use current battery technology. Problem with the current battery technology, although improving with each passing year, is power density, with current battery achieving barely half of what is required for an passenger aircraft. “The issue with existing batteries is that they suck,” Elon Musk famously said. And the technology entrepreneur, in all his eloquence, has a point – how often has your smartphone died halfway through the day or your laptop screen faded to black during a meeting? Battery power density is Critical, The need to keep weight down without sacrificing range or power makes energy density the all-important figure. Right now, the specific energy of batteries is roughly 2 to 3 percent that of liquid fuel. Factor in the efficiency of electric powertrains compared to internal combustion engines, brings efficiency closer to 7 percent—so 1,000 kilogram of jet fuel yields about 14 times more energy than a 1,000-kilogram battery. Battery energy density is rising by a not negligible 2 to 3 percent per year. Tesla’s cars go farther with each iteration. “It’s not the same ballpark as Moore’s Law progress because it’s chemistry, not electronics, but it’s still very good.” Besides, batteries don’t need to match liquid fuel pound for pound to catch on. If it can get to five times its current density—that would be 1,000 watt-hours per kilogram—it would work for small-scale commercial aviation. “That 1000 watt-hours/kg number reflects the approximate equivalent of one third the energy density of gasoline, factoring the relative differences in efficiency of the powertrains, that’s when we can expect batteries to be good enough to power small aircraft for practical uses.”

Obama Wants More Fuel efficient Trucks On US Roads
Drawing a link between reduced fuel consumption and climate change, President Barack Obama said Tuesday that his administration will issue tougher fuel-efficiency standards for delivery trucks by March 2016. Obama said helping these vehicles use less fuel would have the triple benefit of making the U.S. less dependent on imported oil, keeping more money in consumer pockets, and reducing the greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming. Obama also said companies that want to join an existing public-private partnership focused on energy-efficient vehicles will get specialized resources and technical expertise from the Department of Energy. Last month at the Detroit Auto Show, Ford Motor Company revealed its lighter and more fuel-efficient version of its bestselling Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Abiotic oil with Jerome Corsi
Jerome Corsi co-author of Black Gold Stranglehold, shared the contention that oil is continually created deep inside the planet, and doesn't stem from dinosaurs or decayed matter (i.e. fossil fuel). Experts estimate that Americans consume more than 25 percent of the world's oil but have control over less than 3 percent of its proven oil supply. This unbalanced pattern of consumption makes it possible for foreign governments, corrupt political leaders, terrorist organisations, and oil conglomerates to hold the economy and the citizens of the United States in a virtual stranglehold. In this book, the authors expose the fraudulent science that has made America so vulnerable: the belief that oil is a fossil fuel and that it is a finite resource. Jerome Corsi explores the international and domestic politics of oil production and consumption, including the wealth and power of major oil conglomerates, the manipulation of world economies by oil-producing nations and rogue terrorist regimes and the shortsightedness of those who endorse expensive conservation efforts while rejecting the use of the oil reserves currently controlled by the U.S. government.

Battery electric Vehicles
Travelling with an electric vehicle You can now go farther than ever in an electric vehicle Canada’s growing electric vehicle infrastructure has charging stations ranging from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador to Victoria, British Columbia, and more are being built all the time. Planning a trip? Use this map to locate electric charging and hydrogen fuelling stations along your route. Investing in cleaner transportation With our private sector partners, we are supporting new charging stations for electric vehicles and refuelling stations for alternative fuels across the country. We are investing $182.5 million in green infrastructure and clean technologies and are committed to increasing the number of zero-emission vehicles on Canada’s roads. There are electric vehicles for all lifestyles With a wide range of models and price points, buying an electric vehicle has never been easier. Right now, there are over 30 battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) available in Canada. BEVs produce no carbon dioxide or other emissions during operation. PHEVs are emissions-free only when operating in electric mode, but they may have a greater driving range than BEVs Many models have enough battery range to meet your daily driving needs when charged overnight.

WAI Pruebas en carga Febrero 2015 III
This project aims to introduce in the international market a new technology for transforming agricultural, urban, industrial, and forestry waste into a new eco-material with outstanding mechanical and calorific characteristics. Its mechanical properties make the material very attractive like a substitute of wood and other natural resources, and its calorific features gives the material a great potential to be used as an eco-fuel, mainly due to the global necessity of replacing fossil fuels by renewable sources. Potential consumers of this material are electric power plants, energy high-consumption industries, construction and derived sectors firms, and consumer-goods manufacturers. The proposal is a radical innovation, because neither the technology nor the resulting product is present in the market yet, and they do not constitute incremental improvement of existing solutions. The competitors’ waste transformation processes only produce a disaggregated material, with no more application than incineration. Nowadays recycling technologies allow the re-utilization of only 60% of the urban waste, which explains why the residues accumulation has become a real concern in Europe. Not only this eco-innovation provide a solution to this problem, but simultaneously address other important environmental challenges: lowering of landfills –which implies less greenhouse gas emanations-, decreasing of fossil fuel consumption -that improves the European energy system reliability and reduces CO2 emissions-, and preservation of exhaustible resources -replacing them with this new eco-material.
Natural Resource Depletion
A special message from his majesty, Mix-master Albert Gore II on Corn to ethanol. Con can be made into ethanol by crushing it, turning it into a pulp. If you ferment this pulp, it turns into sugars. Add yeast to these sugars and you have yourself some ethanol.
