Suggest New Forum on Environmental Engineering

In summary: But still, it would be helpful to have a separate forum specifically for discussing renewable fuels, energy conservation, and other technologies related to climate change. There seems to be a reasonable demand for it, based on the number of recent threads on these topics in various forums.

I would like to suggest a new forum to discuss topics like renewable fuels, energy conservation, energy production, electric cars and any other technology being developed in response to climate change.

Please show based on previous posting rate on PF that this topic has a reasonable demand to have its own forum.

There are plenty of engineering sub forums to cover those areas.

Here are recent threads I found that might be suitable for an Environmental Engineering forum. Please note that many of these threads are in general forums or in some cases in rather inappropriate forums. I was rather surprised that electric cars were being discussed in Computing & Technology forum and the Politics & World Affairs. The algae thread is up to 400 posts in the Climate forum and most of it concerns making fuel from algae, which isn't really climate science.

The algae thread was a member that was considering making biofuel from algae.

I know, I've posted in that thread. It would be nice to be able to discuss raising algae without the climate forum restrictions.

We don't have a Climate forum. We have an Earth [science] forum which happens to be dominated by arguments about global warming. :rolleyes:

Sorry, my mistake. I meant the Earth forum.
