    Patrick Meehan Jeb WaldschmidtENGL 102-053-26-05 Natural Gas and the Future of Energy Until recently natural gas was considered the dirty brother of oil. Natural gas was often stranded and left undeveloped, often wasting it. Oftentimes natural gas was considered 'unusable' and 'worthless' compared to oil. But now that the oil is running out a new light is being shown on natural gas. Today natural gas is very much in favor as a clean fossil fuel, especially for electricity generation in industria...
  • Alternative Fuels Natural Gas

    Ken French er 3/19/99 Chem 136 Liquid Fuels from Natural Gas We have known for a long time that eventually our oil deposits will dry up, and it would be helpful at that time if we had some kind of alternative fuel to power all of the machines that we use. Over the past two decades more oil has been pumped than has been found in the world. For this reason scientists have been looking to potential alternative fuels for the future. One of these alternative fuels may come in the form of natural gas....
  • Deregulation Of Natural Gas
    1,530 words
    The Deregulation of the Natural Gas Industry The main objective of my paper is to discuss the key points surrounding the deregulation of the natural gas industry. I will lead into this discussion by explaining how the industry performed during a period of regulation and what transpired forcing a change to deregulate. By definition, deregulation is the de-emphasis of governmental oversight of activities in the private sector (Understanding Deregulation, p. 4). It was believed that regulation, whi...
  • Cause And Effects On Todays Rising Gas Prices
    1,320 words
    Cause and Effects on Today's Rising Gas Prices Natural gas is not a renewable resource, since there is a fixed amount of it trapped in the Earth. However, many people carry the misconception that there is a very limited amount of natural gas, and that we may use all of it up. This isn t true. The gas shortages of the 1970's were prompted by the government s lack of faith in the industry s ability to discover and develop new reserves, not by lack of gas supply. The unfortunate impression left by ...

  • Mustard Gas Chlorine Military Troops
    481 words
    Mustard Gas is a group of chemical compounds used in chemical warfare, so called because of its mustard-like smell. Mustard gas contains carbon, hydrogen, and chlorine, with either sulfur or nitrogen. When it comes in contact with skin, mustard gas causes severe blisters. Clothing can be worn to protect the skin, but breathing it produces extreme damage to the lungs and other internal tissues. These compounds are particularly harmful to moist areas of the human body, such as the eyes, armpits, a...
  • Fuel Wars Gas Prices

    Fuel Wars A response to the increasing gas prices Over the past two years, it has been said that gas prices would begin to rise in 1999. Immediately, this news grasped the attention of the business sector and public. Both spent their time devising a plan, on how to keep the prices low, but the time has come for these plans to begin working. The fuel prices have increased dramatically and the economy is now starting to feel the effect. Around the world, the increase of the price of crude oil has ...

  • Natural Gas And Pollution
    1,374 words
    Natural Gas, Pollution, and Our Environment In today's society there is a great need for environmental protection. Things that happened during our parents and grandparents age have caused a great concern for our ozone, our air, and our environment. You constantly hear about the many sources of pollution, but we hardly ever hear about the solutions. In this paper I will present one possible solution to the air pollution problem that has been caused by too many automobile emissions being released ...

  • The Dust Cloud Hypothesis
    325 words
    The universe contains huge clouds made up of very large amounts of dust and gas. About 6, 000, 000, 000 (billion) years ago, one of these clouds began to condense. Gravitation -- the pull that all objects in the universe have for one another -- pulled the gas and dust particles together. As the dust cloud condensed, it began to spin. It spun faster and faster and flattened as it spun. It became shaped like a pancake that is thick at the centre and thin at the edges. The slowly spinning centre c...

    Today's Rising Gas Prices At some point in everyone's lives, we are affected by the rising gas prices in today's economy. Natural gas is not a renewable resource, since there is a fixed amount of it trapped in the Earth. However, many people carry the misconception that there is a very limited amount of natural gas, and that we may use all of it up. This isn't true.

  • Natural Gas Price Supply Run
    396 words
    Analysis Paper 1 The EIA predicted Midwestern Illinois families to be spending as much as 40% more on heating this year compared to last year because of higher natural gas prices. The increase in price is largely due to the reduction of natural gas supplied. In the short run, supply and demand for natural gas is relatively inelastic. The supply is inelastic because the quantity of known natural gas reserves and the capacity for natural gas extraction can not be changed in a short amount of time....

  • Tragic Situation In Innu Community

    Until 30 years ago the Innu were nomadic hunters in the forests of eastern Canada. Today they live in communities with high rates of suicide, alcoholism, child abuse and family violence. Canada seems intent on destroying the Innu's land - their sole hope of survival - with a series of mega-projects, which it is pushing despite the fact that the Innu have never signed away their land. Between the 1950 s and 1970 s the Innu were settled in fixed communities, under pressure from the government and ...
  • Discussion On Power Plants
    666 words
    Natural Gas Power Plant Natural gas is a fossil fuel that is created when decomposed plants and animals are subjected to intense heat and pressure within the earth over thousands of years. It is the carbon content in natural gas that is combusted to generate electric power. Since humans consume natural gas at a significantly higher rate than it is naturally produced natural gas is considered a nonrenewable energy source. A typical natural gas power plant is shown in Figure 1. Figure 1: Natural g...
  • Fluidization Theory Pressure Drop
    420 words
    3. 2 Justification for Proposed Work 3. 2. 1 Theory Fluidization is a process where solid-state particles are moved into a fluid-like state by means of suspension from either a gas or a liquid. This is accomplished by passing an upward flow of either a gas or liquid up through a fixed bed of small solid particles. Fluidized beds are used in industry for a number of reasons. First, they are an easily controlled process due to smooth, liquid-like flow of the particles. Also, compared to other met...
  • Greenhouse Gas Methane Species Plants
    372 words
    Grasslands emit greenhouse gas 20 August 2008 Chinese researchers have found further evidence that plants emit significant quantities of methane - a potent greenhouse gas. But the latest findings also show that methane emissions depend not just on the species of plant, but the conditions in which they are growing. Frank Keppler, from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg, Germany, first claimed in January 2006 that the world's plants, previously seen as a greenhouse gas sink t...
