Energy news round-up

Found three news articles that I'd like to share today. First up, an editorial in the San Jose Mercury News by  a solar company CEO advocating the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Tax Act of 2008. Notable quote from the writer:

"I've been a registered Republican for more than 20 years. This year I find it impossible to support a party that bends to the wishes of Big Oil. Their excuse is that the White House does not want to reduce incentives for finding new sources of oil and gas. We've obviously got an energy shortage, but let's put these renewable energy incentives in perspective."

The second article of note is from the Boston Globe and covers Boston's exploration of the use of their lawn waste compost pile as an energy source. And the third article of note is for the computer geeks out there. Ever wonder about making your own computer more energy efficient by completely rebuilding it? Check out this article from Ars Technica.

Enjoy!
