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"

Don't get flustered at him because you believed the cherry picked lines that the Far Right fed you. Always check your sources.

Was his lips moving ?? Then as we have discovered all too recently, he has lied !!

In the same interview he said, "This notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion, because the fact of the matter is that right now, we are getting a lot of our energy from coal, and China is building a coal-fired plant once a week. So what we have to do then is we have to figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it? If we can't, then we're going to still be working on alternatives."

Obama said in 2008 while running for this first term.

“If someone wants to build a new coal-fired power plant they can, but it will bankrupt them because they will be charged a huge sum for all the greenhouse gas that's being emitted," he said.

Again you are not getting it. The war on coal is shutting down the cheaper electric generation and it is being replaced with more expensive fuels. There will be issues with supply and demand as these coal generated megawatts are retired. And therefore there will be blackouts and brownouts. When that happens, the suppliers have to purchase expensive power to replace it and guess what, they will pass that expense on to the consumers. Just wait a year or so, it will come to pass and you all will be hopping mad because your power bill went from $100 a month to $300 for the same kilowatt usage. But it will be cleaner. You will see.

The energy industry is a whole different ball of wax from the pollution issue. There is so much that goes into the pricing of fuel/energy and the Govt regulations are just a piece of it.

Kendall78: I watched a 60 minutes thing a few years ago where thy interviewed a guy that developed something in a box that was almost pollution free technology and supposedly has installed one at Google and some other places around silicon valley. What ever happened to that?

Electricity will become expensive. I feel sorry for those on fixed income. Soon it will also be me.

The problem with Coal is the feds. The Feds have made the pollution goals a moving target. First it was SO2. Check.

Then it was Mercury. Check.

Now the Feds have finally found one that can’t be done and that is CO2. Check and Mate.

When you mean solar power...be specific.

Also, that is why we invest money into development of new tech. Only fools and cowards give up when it gets tough.

YOU IDIOT - I am not talking about the sun I am talking about solar POWER !!! There are no developed technologies available as of yet that can efficiently harness the sun in the amount of SUSTAINABLE MEGA WATTS that we/you DEMAND in this country. Again - you should refrain from discussing topics you are in ignorance of such as this one !!

"The point about renewables is there is NO sustainability in them like there is coal or nukes."

Sadly you are quite wrong. The Sun will far outlast any coal supply. Nuclear power would last a long time but of course there are side effects to that tech.

You might want to pause your emotional filled rant and realize that I have never said we should get rid of coal and any of it. I am for using it more efficiently and develop alternative power sources.

You have to admit, if we can develop better working hyrdo, solar and wind power tech that we wouldn't have to rely on other nations as much for fossil fuels.

You think !!???? NO - I think Gore and these liberal professors are lying.. The point about renewables is there is NO sustainability in them like there is coal or nukes. When the wind does NOT blow - guess what - it is usually hotter than blazes. And when the sun don't shine - it is colder than Alaska !! You cannot get around that fact. There will need to be coal, gas and nukes if you want to type on that computer. You treehuggers are so freaking stupid about electricity !!

I never claimed that anything Gore said was fact or fiction. I was just pointing out that the video had numerous flaws in it. I think you agree that it did.

It is no worse than the crappola that lying Al Gore was spreading with his "Inconvenient Untruths" that by the way are not based on facts !!!

It's a pitiful video greek. Real science isn't about trying to say what is good or evil. That one scientist at the end tries to make it out that way. There is fact or falsehood. None of those scientists offered any real evidence for their pov. They rely on the lack of knowledge to be their evidence.

6. The video says that the Sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow. Oy vey. I think the Sun shines a bit more quickly and wind blows a bit more than new sources of coal and oil are produced.

7. Then of course they have to go down the crazy by wondering what would happen if we quit using oil LIKE RIGHT NOW! Of course, no one has suggested that we quit using oil fully. It's only been suggested that we find other sources to slowly replace the finite energy source we call fossil fuels.

3. They constantly confuse theorizing with claiming something to be fact. When a scientist puts up the theory that natural phenomenon can be effected by man-made climate change...that's what it is..a theory. They need to learn the difference.

4. They mock that a prediction that the ice caps would be totally gone but yet ignore the fact that the ice caps have shrunk.

5. And of course the video slides into politics by sloppily trying to divide the issue into Left Vs Right fight.
