The new 'peak oil'? A dollar invested in solar yields more energy than a dollar invested in oil The Ecologist

According to oil company executives, oil is going to be a major energy source to 2100 and beyond. So after hearing an oil man make his case, Chris Goodall went home and crunched some numbers. Money invested in solar power already produces more energy than if it's put into oil exploration and production, and the gap is only going to widen from here. Is this the new 'peak oil'?

Old-Growth Trees Defended from Path of Pipeline in PA Earth First! Newswire

by John Zangas / DC Media Group

Clear-cutting of trees on a Pennsylvania family farm for the Constitution Pipeline was held off another day by successful negotiations between property owners and pipeline company representatives. The discussion was backed up by a large group of pipeline opponents, who stood ready to block the incursion of tree cutters.

Dozens of people have traveled long distances to join hands on the Zeffer-Holleran property near New Milford, PA and defend five acres of old-growth trees in the path of the 125-mile-long Constitution Pipeline. The conflict escalated early on Wednesday when twenty loggers attempted to begin cutting trees. After both sides discussed their positions, a representative from Williams Partners called state troopers, according to Megan Holleran. The troopers told Williams Partners and the tree cutters that they would not be enforcing any action, so the cutters left the site for the day.

The impasse with joint pipeline owners Cabot Oil & Gas Co. and Williams Partners, LLC, is in its second week. The Holleran family has been harvesting maple syrup since they acquired the land in the 1950’s. They market the syrup locally as part of a family business.

Though the project is facing legal challenges in Second District Court, the loggers are already removing trees along a 20-mile segment in northwestern Pennsylvania. The pipeline will be used to transport natu...
