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"

The POWER PLANT SMOKESTACKS (not emissions towers, who is the uneducated fool here?) are typically 800 feet high. The boilers have steel casings that have a nasty habit of leaking so the employees get to huff into their lungs all that crap that goes up the smokestack. If a casing leak is bad enough I have seen the boiler room a blue haze of smoke, INSIDE the buildings. So YOU TWO are the uneducated idiots (typical liberals) that need to educate yourselves !!!BOOOYYEEAAHHH!!!!

I am telling you - I know of NO ONE that died of black lung in the power plant industry. NOT MINING. Some that I know died of heart/lung disease but not enough to justify the 13,000 people that are supposed to have died from pollution.!! Wouldn't YOU think that if pollution was killing 13,000 people that most of the power plant workers would have died from the same affliction !??? MOre than ONE out of 500 workers???Since they are exposed to it at least 90 percent more than the average Joe on the street ????Since they handle it every day of their lives except for days off ??????? Do you comprehend????

They wasted their money on these biased reports just like they did the global warming. You can call me ignorant all you want, it still will not change my mind and what I have experienced in the last 35 years. Try as you want. I am not buying it !! I never supplied you any info except what I experienced and what I saw. If you don't want to believe it, that is your prerogative but you don't have to say I am IGNORANT !!!

What links? I never supplied links !!! That is what I have been talking about and I have been trying to explain to you. Power plant emissions !!! Not coal mining...

And I am not gonna list all of the names of my coworkers on here that have died in the last 30 years.

ONCE AGAIN. POWER PLANT. Not coal mine! Not coal Mine! Not coal Mine! Do you all even know the difference???I NEVER SAID NO ONE IN COAL MINING INDUSTRY EVER DIED OF BLACK LUNG. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT COAL MINES.GOT THAT??? YOU ARE THE ONES WITH CLOSED MINDS AND YOUR TYPES ARE DECIDING THE FUTURE OF THE ELECTRIC INDUSTRY TODAY. TOTALLY Unknowledgable about electric power generation. For you EXPERTS info, solar, wind and even hydro will not even keep up with the increase in yearly new generation demand needed. I do NOT believe that the 13,000 deaths from coal can even be proven. That is what I am telling you. You are buying into something that cannot be proven. But if you can, in your immense knowledge. PROVE IT... No one else has except by throwing out a bogus report that you sheeple believe!!

So to date you have called me a racist because I made the comment that not everyone that grew up in the 60's witnesses slavery and racism because they lived out in remote areas. I am a homophobe because I quoted bible passages. And not I am an idiot that has not been paying any attention at my workplace for 35 years and don't care or go to funerals of retirees and have no clue what they died of !!! Sound about right asknot. Try this on - KISS MY A$S. You are one offensive SO B.

Once again, you embarrass yourself on these forums because of your ideals.

You Asknot pick any power company - DUKE. PSEG, First Energy whoever and do a study to see how many retired power plant employees have died from lung disease and get back to me and we will see who this applies to - Asknot. I should clarify, one that refuses to at least look into actual knowledge and challenge their own beliefs scare me! And ones that share "knowledge" that is blatantly and obviously untrue and refuse to spend 30 minutes learning truth scare me. YIKES man/woman;)

ASKNOT your typical closemindedness " I have made my mind up already" is appalling. You will not even allow the PERSONAL experience of a person that has been employed somewhere for 35 years to influence you boner with the liberal ilk. !!! Seamstress was right when she said she was not gonna waste her time arguing with faceless people. YOU will never be able to prove that coal emissions are harmful to me until you do a study on power plant workers that wallered in the stuff they did pre OSHA and safety council rules. Your prefer to blindly buy into scientific, democrat approved junk that suits your agenda, whatever that is??Have a happy life in LaaaLaaa land.

I do not know of ONE person that died from black lung from where I worked. One fellow died of heart/lung disease because he was showered with AGENT ORANGE in VietNam.

thegreek

Most of the people that retired from where I work died from OLD AGE believe it or not. AND there is no ash or cinders in the coal fields that I know of. So you are saying that a person that works somewhere for 35 years if full of it right ??

Posted 264 days ago.

thegreek

I NEVER said I worked in the COAL fields !!!

thegreek

The number 1 reason I do not buy into this is the fact that I have personally wallered in coal dust, coal, flyash, cinders and their byproducts for 35 years and none of the non smoking retirees I know have died of lung cancer associated with coal emissions. I have challenged people on here before to explain that to me and no one can. If it is so dangerous then the power plant worker people should be the HIGHEST STRICKEN group there is. But NO ONE can. You would think there would be a study on that if coal emissions are killing people as they say.

thegreek

The only people saying that coal emissions are killing people is the environmentalist and they cannot truly say that it killed people any more than car exhausts. No one has ever conducted an experiment where they were in a controlled environment and were breathing in coal emissions or car emissions for the duration of the experiment. SO, it is a non proven theory at best !!!
