Renewable Energy

We're going to run out of any kind of fossil fuels, so we need to move on to a renewable source.

This week on Bloomberg West we featured an innovative water treatment project developed at Stanford University. The researchers are not only cleaning up our oceans, but they say they can produce energy from it, too!
