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 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

OWO.....sorry about some of the spelling errors....but i was serious about getting your input on how this can be possible in the long-term without having to wait out the long-term. one initial step would be to calculate the amount of energy neccessary to allow for our current travel desires to be met with minimum impact on cost,comfort, time, energy consumption and money. perhaps you have a better starting point.

OWO...,have you bought your first electric car yet? the President wants 1 million on the orad this year. we must start somewhere. btw...Lowes will be having a sale on extra-long extention cords. i have been running through several scenarios how the elecrifying of Americas passion with travel will be possible. i have some ideas...how about you? ....lets not start with getting someone weathier than ourselves to do it for us...we must have the sesolve to do this thing.

Not calling you a Dummy. Just the reference to where you got your facts.

Yeah frackings good for the environment alright !(sarcasm) Maybe tell that to the people who have lost their water wells or have water that catches on fire !

“does that imply a disbelief in a relationship between quakes and fracking” Yes. It is a dig at the folks that claim fracking is causing earth quakes. The relationship seems to be taking the waste water from fracking and re-injecting it into waste wells, not the actual fracking itself. Seems like the solution would be to treat the waste water and make it re-usable not to ban fracking.

Steel making results in a lot of dirty water also. We did not ban steel making, we just make the steel companies clean the water.
