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"

Ameren Corp. (NYSE: AEE) has proposed one of the first alternatives to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Power Plan (CPP), publishing a white paper asserting that constructive and common-sense alterations to the CPP are needed to avoid the imposition of staggering costs on utility customers and significant risks to electric grid reliability.

The company says its proposal would achieve the same final CO2 emission reduction goals as the EPA's own plan, while saving $4 billion in costs and avoiding grid reliability problems related to the premature closure of key coal-fired power plants.

Can you use the words "common sense" and "EPA" in the same sentence?

OWO- I knew Oblabla was a knucklehead and you just proved it. So he is against building something that already exists? His teleprompter must have f a r t e d .

NOW, the operators of the brine injection wells at Torch, Ohio are seeking permission to establish a 4th well. If I were an attorney representing DuPont in ongoing litigation concerning the ill-effects of C8 on humans, I'd be ALL IN FAVOR of as many brine wells established downriver as possible. Future disease development will be hard to blame upon DuPont's negligence if other poisons are being pumped into the aquifers by brine disposal units.

Keystone XL does not exist.

You keep bringing up the same old BS argument in regards to the pipeline. If what they are debating in congress is already built than what are they debating. And if what they are debating already exists, than what is Oblabla against building? Are you and Oblabla both knuckleheads or just you?. But just in case you’re not up to your Googling, what the is being proposed is the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline (Phase IV), which would essentially duplicate the Phase I pipeline between Hardisty, Alberta, and Steele City, Nebraska,[9] with a shorter route and a larger-diameter pipe. It would run through Baker, Montana, where American-produced light crude oil from the Williston Basin (Bakken formation) of Montana and North Dakota would be added[7] to the Keystone's current throughput of synthetic crude oil (syncrude) and diluted bitumen (dilbit) from the oil sands of Canada.

LOL

The most popular electric car, a Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime will emit 31 metric tons of CO2, based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption at average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable diesel Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit only 3 tons more across its production, diesel consumption and ultimate scrapping.

The results are similar for the top-line Tesla car, emitting about 44 tons, about 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro.

In both cases the electric car is better, but only by a tiny bit. Avoiding 3 tons of CO2 would cost less than $27 on Europe's emissions trading market. The annual benefit is about the cost of a cup of coffee.

Yet U.S. taxpayers spend up to $7,500 in tax breaks for less than $27 of climate benefits. That's a bad deal.

"CSX train, HAULING CRUDE OIL, derails into the Kanawha River".

NO, LET'S CONTINUE TO BE STUPID AND NOT SUPPORT THE TRANSPORT OF CRUDE BY RESISTING THE BUILDING OF THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE.

No#1 refineries , No #2 I don't know but if they can ship all the way from Alaska I think it might be viable , No#3 What will you say when the line leaks and pollutes the land and water for miles around ! Gotta pay the devil his dues !
