When the sunlight hits the boiler, it heats the water inside to create superheated steam used to spin an electricity-generating turbine." "With Corporate Help, Obama Announces Actions on Renewable Energy," reuters.com, May 9, 2014 "The Environmental Protection Agency on Monday [June 2] proposed a rule designed to cut carbon dioxide emissions from existing coal plants by as much as 30 percent by 2030, compared with 2005 levels… Existing power plants are the largest source of the nation’s carbon dioxide emissions, accounting for 38 percent. (The transportation sector comes in second, at 32 percent.) Much of this pollution stems from aging, coal-fired power plants… Renewable-energy producers from the solar and wind sector stand to benefit from the regulation because it would provide utilities with a greater incentive to invest in carbon-free electricity sources.

That is, there is exactly as much of it around after something happens as there was before. Heavy naphtha is mainly used for production of aromatics. Crude oil accounted for 48% of this price, refining costs and profits accounted for 19%, federal and state taxes accounted for 19%, and distribution and marketing accounted for 14%. [297] * Crude oil resources [298] can be grouped into four major categories based upon their accessibility: conventional oil, which is located in porous rocks and reservoirs that allow the oil to freely flow to the surface of the earth when it is accessed through drilling. [299] [300] tight oil (sometimes called shale oil [301] [302] [303] ), which is located in semi-porous or non-porous rocks that don’t allow the oil to freely flow when accessed through drilling.
