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"

“China will look to peak its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, invest in carbon-free energy and reduce its carbon intensity to help curb global warming, officials announced Tuesday (June 30, 2015)”

West Texas Intermediate crude futures skidded through the year's lows and looked set to break into the $30s-per-barrel range after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries admitted to more pumping and China devalued its currency, sending ripples through global markets.

Bring on the SUV's!

Harry...thanks for the information. i was unaware of that program for Ohio. the program seems to be ridiculous and logical both at the same time. interesting.

absolem,

It's not just states. The EPA Ambient Air Quality Standards for metropolitan smog, begun in 1990, go on a county-to-county basis. E-check is required if the standard is exceeded.

Currently 7 counties in Ohio with populations over 100,000 exceed the limits--Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage, and Summit.

Harry, good afternoon... Beright has a point. as an example..i live in a state where annual emission testing is required for all registered cars and trucks. the states that share our borders do not have the requirement. with that said, air moves and along with the air so do the pollutants. the ying and the yang of the situation is quite apparent. you make an excellent point as well. the excuse that "everyone does it" is a very well-worn excuse used by well...everyone for everything. much like some of our current laws, selective partipation as well as enforcement sullies an otherwise good goal for everyone. perhaps it is time to return to the moon to begin the harvesting of Helium-3 for energy production. it is an interesting concept.

moderation...my dear friend, that statement was made tongue-in-cheek as i found the imagery just too laughable to ignore. the tenacity and sheer lunacy to do such a thing was stunning. i will point out that the show "Gypsy Sisters" indicates that a few are....dare i say unique. i am certain we have as many ,if not more, unique folks that do things just as unimaginable. i will add that i find your objection to blanket perception a little skewed as in the ones that are hurled at posters here and nary a peep from you to correct them. i will consider my case to be special and exceptional for some reason. perhaps it is a regional pride thing verses an adversarial one...as i do not consider us to be adversaries. do you? in the end, if i have insulted you per se, i ask that you forgive the insult and allow us to move forward. thank you for letting me be special.

This comes from the discredited "everyone agrees" defense, All the robbers agree robbing the liquor store is a good thing

Lol an as if on cue our carbon crusader local republican and all around scientist Harry shows up.

Of course they see the need, its becoming a right to operate issue due to Regulation. Doesnt mean it has any effect on the climate of course, thats for the idiots to beleive

Get off the box. Pick on the folks who aren't doing their part.

My point is that the USA is now doing our part as quick as we can but the tree huggers would lead you to believe otherwise.

So Dominion brags about reducing carbon emissions, huh? Even fossil fuel companies now see the need to cut carbon emissions, of course. Since they must deal with reality, they haven’t the luxury of living in fantasyland like Jim Inhofe.

As to the complaint that the US alone can’t solve the carbon problem, that’s ridiculous. One’s inability to solve a problem by oneself doesn’t excuse one from doing his or her part. That’s the old discredited “everybody does it” defense. It’s like not robbing the liquor store because your actions wouldn’t have much effect on the national crime rate.

The Energy Department says heat-trapping pollution from U.S. power plants hit a 27-year low in April.

We are working on contributing less. When we go 100% solar and wind, China and India will still be burning coal.

Unless I am mistaken, I don't think the atmosphere has doors so if C02 goes up in China it still goes up.

The Sierra Club needs to work on the Communists. We are already doing our part.

We do contribute, now don't we ?

Too bad China and India aren't..

Well, it's comforting to hear that it is being lessened .................

Too bad China and India are doing their part. He we are trying to save the world on our own.

Is CO2 only bad when the USA does it?

If you watch the media and listen to the tree huggers, you would think only the USA burns coal and everyone uses wind power.

br-you mean to say there is a condition called "heat trapping pollution" and it is mostly created by electric power generating plants burning fossil fuels, and more particularly, coal ? Well, it's comforting to hear that it is being lessened . Heck, if it continued, the earths' glaciers and polar ice caps may begin to melt and even influence world wide weather, negatively.

In its eighth annual Citizenship & Sustainability Report (CSR) released last Thursday, Dominion says the company's carbon intensity rate – carbon emissions per unit of electric output from its generating fleet – declined by 28 percent from 2008 to 2014. Over the same period, the company's total equivalent carbon dioxide emissions, which include carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrogen oxides, have been reduced by about 37 percent.

I wonder if that tree hugger Marguerite from Williamstown sends letters to the Gov't in China about their coal burning plants?
