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"

Beright....when the United States stops consuming carbon-based commodities at the rate in which we do, whom will then comsume the excess and how will we contend with the shift? OWO is correct about the purchasing of "carbon credits". to me it seemed to be a reverse tax. it was a tax concealed as a product....and that product was the purchased right to polute beyond current limits or goals. personally, i think the current energy companies should be given first right of refusal when it comes to implementing new energy sources. the so-called tax credits could very well form the seeds for the investment into sustainable and safe energy. we will still have the need for oil-based petroleum products. reducing the need is not only smart but acts in insuring that we maintain a supply of the valuable resource for future use.

President Barack Obama is framing the challenges of climate change as a matter of national security that threatens to aggravate poverty and political instability around the globe and jeopardize the readiness of U.S. forces.

Sounds like we are going to invade countries who burn Coal like India and China.

Coal in the new WMD.

Do we really want another war?

Well you're wrong again....These out of date , obsolete, plants were suppose to be granted time to update while they operated by purchasing pollution credits ! Instead of doing what they were supposed to they just took the money and ran ! Lets see ,wealthy power plant owners.....thumbing their nose ate the government ... if I had to guess , I'd say republicans

Well you're wrong again... That was before they built all these new natural gas power plants because of the Marcellus Shale boom and the power was badly needed back then and coal was all you had... It wasn't because of any evil republican greedy politicians as you think...

Wake up and do a little research TP ! The shutting down of old coal fired power plants was supposed to happen years ago ! Only when the government found that they could make money by selling pollution credits did they choose to enable them to stay in operation !

Harry of course I am not hoping people will die from a blackout. Hospitals have back up generators. Individuals that are on life support are prioritized by the power company to get theirs restored as well. The activist have claimed 17,000 lives will be saved by ditching coal which I say is b...s.. Their tactics are of domestic terrorist. If you are so concerned for these people in a blackout, why aren't you all speaking up ? People are losing their jobs due to coal plant and mines closing as we speak but that's OK huh ? I am convinced that Greenpeace and Sierra Club are receiving funds from OPEC !!! They would benefit nicely from shuttering our US oil fields and coal plants.

This "run"? Six years of 'leadership' (cough) under a man whose had Harry Reid running interference and serving as a doorstop for him for all that time.

Is that the time period "run" to which you refer?

Well after this run of republinuts screwing up this country , they will be back on the unemployment line !

Yep! I couldn't agree more. We need to replace more of those longtime entrenched blood-sucking ticks known as members of the Democratic Caucuses in the statehouses and in the District of Columbia.

Instead of worrying about whats come to pass , lets get the republiduds off their arses and start making replacements !

I wouldn't sweat it. With Muslim kisser Obama in the WH, we'll probably all suffer the effects of an EMP-caused electrical collapse anyway.

Won't you leftist tree huggers feel silly after that?

I can hear it now. "Oh what I'd give for a good, ole, operating coal-fired power plant.

Maybe there will be blackouts, if the right people "hope and dream the lights will go out."

Harry, there will be blackouts.

"I can only hope and dream that the lights go out in places like this that hurt. Only then will people get mad..."

Are you seriously wishing for electrical blackouts so people will "get mad" at the Sierra Club and Greenpeace? You are aware that people might die if you get your wish and "the lights go out," aren't you? You do know that electricity is used for life-saving devices like oxygen-generators, don't you?

If you're so mad at people in the Sierra Club and Greenpeace, why don't you just assassinate them instead of wishing harm on the general population?
