ABSTRACT
The article discusses a new study from Stanford University in California on electric power sources and two liquid fuel options. The new study reviews and ranks major energy-related solutions to global warming, air pollution deaths, and energy security. It came up with a conclusion that ethanol, nuclear, and coal-with-carbon-storage (CCS) are dirty, inefficient, and wasteful compared to eco-friendly resources, such as wind, direct sunlight, geothermal and ocean energy.
