The Ocean, Nuclear and Solar Power are forms of alternative energy which can be developed.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a potential alternative energy source that needs to be funded and explored much more than it presently is.
There are three kinds; closed, open and hybrid cycle of OTEC.
“Closed Cycle” uses a low-boiling point liquid such as, for example, propane to act as an intermediate fluid. The OTEC plant pumps the warm sea water into the reaction chamber and boils the intermediate fluid. This results in the intermediate fluid’s vapor pushing the turbine of the engine, which thus generates electricity. The vapor is then cooled down by putting in cold sea water.
I picked these solar panels up last year at Newegg when they had a crazy 2 for 1 sale. $24.99 for 2 and free shipping. I couldn’t pass it up. They work great. Now I’m ready for when the New World Order hits the electrical grid, lol. I haven’t seen the deal come again. Amazon has them cheap: www.amazon.com

Product Description Are hurricanes increasing in ferocity and frequency because of global warming? In the wake of Katrina, leading science journalist Chris Mooney follows the careers of top meteorologists on either side of this red-hot question through the 2006 hurricane season, tracing how the media, special interests, politics, and the weather itself have skewed and amplified what was already an intense scientific debate. In this fascinating and urgently important book, Mooney—a na… More >>
