U.S. coal and oil companies have enough on their minds trying to cut costs, protect cash flows and placate investors who keep glancing at the exits. That leaves very little time to contemplate the giant in the east: China, whose energy ...

A new study released Tuesday suggests that the global oil and gas industries allow as much as 3.6 trillion cubic feet of natural gas — and almost certainly far more — to escape into the atmosphere annually. The leakage rate represents at least ...

With the continual worsening of California’s drought, an odd argument -- in some ways as much meme as argument -- has arisen. It’s the notion that in the context of the drought, it’s important to cut back on the water used in industrial hydraulic ...

On the outskirts of downtown St. Paul, Minn., Xcel Energy's High Bridge Generating Station offers an iconic view of the current state of electrical generation in the United States. Opened in 2008 as a replacement for an aging coal plant, the ...

Ever since the Italian count Alessandro Volta invented the first electric battery in 1799, scientists have sought to ramp up its performance. Even though we have sent a robot to Mars and split the atom, it has proved surprisingly difficult. Now a ...

Germany has proposed a draft law that would allow commercial shale gas fracking at depths of over 3,000 metres, overturning a de facto moratorium that has been in place since the start of the decade.A new six-person expert panel would ...

On December 14, 2006, Barbara Correro was at home drinking tea, reading the paper. She had spent the past five years and most of her savings on a long-cherished retirement dream: a small mobile home on 24 acres of pine and hardwood forest, a ...
