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"

I fail to see why the republicans wish to be drug kicking and screaming into the new world ! Renewable energy will happen whether you like it or not ! You don't hear those in Europe or Alaska whining about it ! They are really quite glad to have it !

In a bid to support the efforts of President Obama’s administration to double renewable energy generation for a second time by 2020, the Department of Energy has announced more than $59 million in funding for solar energy innovation. The Department will make $45 million in funding available to quickly move innovative solar manufacturing technologies to market, and will also make available $14 million for 15 new projects that will help communities develop multi-year solar deployment plans to install solar electricity in homes, businesses, and communities.

Maybe they can find those guys who ran Solyndra.

No , I'm describing a "defined pension plan " And some if not all are paid into by both company and employee ! And what do you call it when an employee gets a raise and decides to put part of that raise into their pension ? is that the employees money or the companies ?

Defined pension programs are funded by the company you worked for and require no contribution on your part. Your describing a defined contribution program.

As far as SS is not a pension but more of a safety net. That is why so many people hurt in retirement because they don't save enough and have no pension.

I know a number of people who are collecting pensions in Marietta and also collection SS. The one thing in common is that none had a union job.

How typically Democratic, ignore the promises made by Demo politicians for exuberant pension benefits that, by the time it's time to pay up with no funding to back their 'promises, their already comfortably in THEIR retirements.

Common thread - greedy companies who wiggled out of their contractual obligations !

Look around and tell me how many defined pension plans are still around !

defined pension for public pensions, you know, the ones funded by taxpayers,are the one mostly in trouble. Union Funded politicians kept signing the contracts with no way to pay them. (Detroit).

GM went belly up because it went from a car maker to a health insurance company who made cars.

Common thread-Unions.
