CLEAN... ENERGY

Offshore wind farms from New Jersey to Virginia took a big step closer to reality with the completion of a review that showed the renewable energy source would not cause major environmental damage, officials said today. Wind projects off the coasts of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and New Jersey are being studied. The Mid-Atlantic lease proposal follows the Cape Wind project in Massachusetts that was given the go-ahead in 2010 after 9 years of federal review."No developer should have to wait nine or 10 years," for approval, Salazar said. The response from the developers was "DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"

The EPA made it too expensive for them to run.

It is Obamas EPA because he names the head and he gives that head person in charge a green light and encouragement to overstep the agencies legal bounds by bowing to the activist groups. Go up to Beverly and try to tell them guys that their units only ran during peak times and ask them if it is Obamas fault.. You will get educated.. A lot of them lost their jobs or had little choice but to retire early. And there was no agreement to fit them with pollution controls so they could run. They were running legally until Obamas EPA came along with stringent rules.

If you go deep enough you'll see that OUR GOVERNMENT allowed these operators to run with the proviso that they would up- grade to clean coal or gas !

No#1 It aint "Obamas EPA" ! Golly you've swallowed that horsesh^t line and sinker ! If you choose to do a little unbiased research you'll find that the EPA has been around for years and that these out of date power stations were supposed to be shut down decades ago ! Try googling "pollution credits" !

The coal plants that are shutting down tend to be older, smaller and used less often than most of their peers — in many cases, they were plants that power companies use to meet peak demands, such as on the hottest days of summer. For now, coal is still the nation’s leading source of utility power, providing 39 percent of the mix last year compared with 27 percent from natural gas.

Coal power isn’t going away entirely — it’s still the No. 1 fuel for U.S. electricity and will remain a major source for decades to come. But its shrinking role is hard to miss.

The end of this month all the power plants that Obamas EPA have assisted in closing are done for good. Hope it works out well for you Obama supporters.
