In the future let's not focus too much to just discuss the causes of the incident, its impact, and how to handle it. Better focus on the use of alternative energy such as solar energy or electrical energy that derived (generated) from geothermal heat, hydro power or sunlight. Maybe I'm just easy to say but that's what I think after watching these video. How with you?
== Post Update ==Comment from Looney to this post has sparked my attention, so I think it's good to copy his comment and my reply to him below:
I am all for alternate energy, but not not if the government picks the technology and then pours billions of taxpayer money into it, or forces people to buy products through regulation. We have this all over California, but none of it is economically viable, the economy is slowly dying, and it still hasn't reduced the use of fossil fuels.
I know from media that Governor California Arnold Schwarzenegger is very concerned to the issue of global warming. My admiration for his efforts to fight against global warming. I don't know exactly what happened there, but let me try to just write my view below:
- The government involvement (and international agreement) can play a major role. And about the fund it certainly needed for big project. Now I'm difficult to find AC that still using Freon (CFC) in the stores. That's because of Montreal Protocol and I think that's good.
- To achieve the viable level economically then the law of demand and supply also play a role.
- If the demand (users) increases, then by naturally the manufacturer in cooperation with scientists will be racing to think hard to create products that are cheap and economically feasible. I think manufacturer still wait and see before pouring a billion dollar fund to produce green products massively. Demand is still a key.
- Government should support the development of adequate infrastructure to support the program. Takes an example in the implementation of the use of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) for cars in Jakarta. Don't ask how much LPG stock for vehicles, for home purpose often out of stock. Besides, the number of LPG filling stations for vehicles is still limited. Not available even on each capital city of province in Indonesia. It does not means LPG is a green energy but only an example of the availability of adequate infrastructure which it must be supported by government.
