I have been reading and hearing a lot of discussion lately about the very real potential for a serious economic collapse of the U.S. economy. This discussion is not coming from government, industry or the wealthy one percent. For them this is an inconvenient discussion, and does not work with their plans and positions of wealth and power.

Staying away from commercial energy drinks can only add to your long term energy. Doctors are now saying that a simple glass of water with lemon juice can do much to activate a sluggish system. This balances ph levels making protein absorption more efficient. This is real green energy. Medical research has also shown that a tablespoon of peanut butter and a glass of water, as unsophisticated as it sounds, can provide longer lasting, better energy than a cup of coffee. All of this sounds a bit unsexy, I know, but more and more people are starting to realize the solution to the energy crisis in your body can be dealt with by a little common sense.

Consider solar water heaters to make your home more energy efficient. This works best in areas where the temperature doesn’t drop below freezing. Solar energy systems circulate water through solar heaters and then pump it into the house. Though you can use this system, it’s best to have a regular water heater for backup purposes, just in case there is a day with little sunlight or more water usage than normal.

EPA’s on-site producers list is topped by Kimberly-Clark Corp., which produces 176.5 million kWh through biomass. No. 2 on the list is the City of San Diego, which produces 69 million kWh through solar, biogas and hydropower.

The fourth technique is bio-gas. Bio-gas is produced naturally via the decomposition of different biological material. This can be from animals and from humans. Farmers can successfully use this method to produce bio-gas. The bio-gas can be used for heating a home or can even be used to cook. This form of alternative energy is also not commonly used inside the city area.

It seems like common sense, but the medical research on sugar is the same. There is no redeeming quality to this harmful additive.Schools are banning pop machines and other high sugar sources. You can be sure, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Check into roof insulation at the local home goods store. If it is possible for the home owner to install the roof insulation on their own, this is an inexpensive project that will pay for itself in energy savings over the next few years. Roof insulation can be done by local contractors or handy men if the homeowner is not able.

The area where you are living, will have a great deal to say about the types of renewable energy that are available to you. The renewable energy process is a growing technology and as better ideas and methods are put into practice, the more renewable energy sources will become available to us all.
