About Sharon Wilson

Sharon Wilson is considered a leading citizen expert on the impacts of shale oil and gas extraction. She is the go-to person whether it’s top EPA officials from D.C., national and international news networks, or residents facing the shock of eminent domain and the devastating environmental effects of natural gas development in their backyards.

    U.S. post 9/11 wars could cost $3.7 trillion.

    $3.7 trillion dollars, it was far enough to launch an internatio­­­nal Manhattan Project to save energy and to end world’s oil addiction and to break up OPEC, which earned $1 trillion last year.

    – The U.S. could produce over one billion tons of biomass a year (300 milion tons of oil equivalent) by 2030, according to a report from the Department of Energy.
    – LED bulbs use 80% less power and last 25 times longer.
    – A super insulated house needs virtually no heating or cooling.
    – A solar water heating system can save 50-75% of the water heating cost.
    – A ice storage air-condit­­­ioning system will use 30%-50% less energy than convention­­­al air-condit­­­ioning system. It makes ice at night, and uses that ice during the day to cool the building.
    – Cargo ships fitted with sail will burn between 10% and 60% less fuel.
    – A biogas truck can save 20 000 gallon of diesel a year.
    – Freight trains are using 3 times less fuel than trucks.
    Double stack freight trains are 5 times more efficient than trucks.
    Freight barges are using 9 times less fuel than trucks.

    111 million households (both single-family and multi-family units) use 258 TWh of electricity for air-conditioning annually.

    With ice storage air-condit­ioning systems (they use 30%-50% less energy than convention­­­al air-conditioning systems) and heat reflective window films (heat reflective films reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and reject up to 60% of the heat coming through your windows), a lot of energy could be saved.
