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"

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?

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.

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."

"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?

Life's faster these days — which means 15 minutes to get a quote is … well, a little old school.

With Esurance, you could save money on car insurance in half the time.

I can only hope and dream that the lights go out in places like this that hurt. Only then will people get mad at Greenpeace and Sierra club and the environmental groups for this War on Coal. Coal has been wrongly blamed for heath issues and I hope the liberals answer one day to all this stupidity and lies they are procreating. A couple of weeks in the heat or freezing cold without a computer should open some eyes..

Consumers Energy Public Affairs Area Manager Yolanda Lewis gave a presentation on her company during the COGG meeting. She spoke of many areas of the company, but her focus was the loss of several coal-fueled power plants in the state in 2016. Seven of those coal plants are Consumers Energy plants, which are referred to as the “Classic Seven.” All told, Lewis reported Michigan will be losing a total of 11 to 16 gigawatts of power as a direct result of these power plant retirements. There is a definite concern from energy companies about having enough back-up power.

How will they keep the lights on at the Casinos in Detroit?

To put 72 GW in perspective, that is enough electrical generation capacity to reliably power 44.7 million homes[3]—or every home in every state west of the Mississippi River, excluding Texas.[4] In other words, EPA is shutting down enough generating capacity to power every home in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

Starting the end of this month May 2015... Thanks to your elected officials. Dont blame your local power company when your bill soars.

Say bye bye to 72 gigawatts of power... EPA Regulations are Already Causing Electricity Prices to Dramatically Rise Unfortunately, recent EPA regulations are already greatly reducing U.S. coal power capacity and raising electricity prices for homes and businesses across the country. According to Dr. Julio Friedman, Assistant Secretary for Clean Coal at the U.S. Department of Energy, wholesale electricity prices could end up rising as much as 80 percent from the effects of these rules.[12] Institute for Energy Research dot org
