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"

And how were the foreign press from about every european nation and most asian nations affected by the shut down? Did they all want to visit the Grand Canyon or the WW2 memeorial in Washington?

MOd. You do realize that the earth itself gives off radiation. In fact right now you are being exposed to probably .30 rems of radiation. Asknot. Mostly the stuff about Obamacare not financially wrecking the country pretty swiftly and pollution.

Let the shake down begin..Rush was correct again.. It’s all about the money:

Following a devastating typhoon that killed thousands in the Philippines, a routine international climate-change conference in Warsaw turned into an emotional forum, with developing countries demanding compensation from the worst-polluting countries for damage they say they already are suffering.

greek- you mentioned something about the amount of spent "fule" occupying space equal to a volume that " would only fill a football filed 3 meters high". If it had only the toxicity of your daily spent "fule", it really wouldn't be a problem.However, it lasts for thousands of years, and can,in the wrong hands, devastate millions,.. both in terms of acreage and humans..

Japan took a major step back on Friday from earlier pledges to slash its greenhouse gas emissions. Under its new goal, Japan, one of the world’s top polluters, would still seek to reduce its current emissions. But it would release 3 percent more greenhouse gases in 2020 than it did in 1990, rather than the 6 percent cut it originally promised or the 25 percent reduction it promised two years before the 2011 nuclear disaster.

Late announcement of the potential construction of a (natural gas) Cracker plant in Wood County, WV. YEAH!!! More needed jobs!

But won't the lower natural gas prices, that many of us were anticipating from the development of the local Marcellus Shale deposits, to heat our homes, be offset by that Cracker plant's competing demands for the volumes of the very same locally produced gas, as a raw material?

asknot - Let America open it's collective eyes (and wallets) concerning the cumulative damage of ObamaCare and the TEA Party will be singing "We've Only Just Begun" in 2014.

As to YOUR feelings about the international consensus on the TEA Party, not every nation is stocked with Liberal Idiots, like you apparently want to believe. The ones that will have their hands stung, by an inevitable reduction to America's foreign aid program, will just have to s-uck it up and hate us FOR FREE. Right now, they are assured we have an intellectual lightweight in office.

Do you suppose that the progressive 'geniuses' that brought us Obama(Demo)Care are more intellectually insightful with their torrential rush to shutdown our coal mines and coal-fired electric generation plants?

My read is, it will take America many years to unburden itself from the encumbrances that the present administration has set for us with it's "Transforming America" agenda. Replacing Obummer with Benghazi Hillary will only delay that recovery and diminish America's international prestige even more.

I wonder if First Mate F. Oneill is still standing fast next to Captain Obama at the helm of the USS Titanic? He's been peculiarly silent of late.

I watched Pandoras Promise directed by Robert Stone last night. Afterwards Anderson Cooper had a panel to discuss it. People are realizing that wind and solar cannot keep up with the demand over the next decade and nuclear is probably gonna have to do it. FRance was pointed out as having 80% nuclear and cheap power. All of the spent fule in the US would only fill a football filed 3 meters high. And. The US is buying other countries nuclear warheads and converting them into fuel for power plants. I did not know that. The environmentalist are having a fit though. Pres. Obama endorses the nuclear plan.

Consumers Energy has asked the state to approve a bond issue that will allow it to close and demolish three coal-fired power plants in Michigan, according to the Associated Press.

The request to the Michigan Public Service Commission would allow it to close and demolish the B.C. Cobb plant on Muskegon Lake beginning in April 2016. The request comes amid stricter federal regulations.

From activist dot com. “There’s nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write history.” These chilling words may sound like an Al Qaeda credo, but they aren’t. They are the words of Sierra Club board member Paul Watson. And there’s more. “Right now we’re in the early stages of World War III,” Watson wrote in the pages of the radical Earth First! Journal. “It’s the war to save the planet. This kind of action will be getting stronger. The environmental movement doesn’t have many deserters and has a high level of recruitment. Eventually there will be open war.”

I suspect they receive anonamous cash gifts from OPEC and Al Qaida.

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity has issued a statement criticizing the Sierra Club for its celebration of the retirement of 150 coal plants in the U.S. since 2010, citing the economic impact of the retirements. “Sierra Club’s celebration of its 150th coal plant retirement is akin to partying at the funeral of the families and communities whose livelihoods have been devastated by these plant closures,” “When a coal plant shuts down, the impact is felt by employees at the plant and the mines that supply it; and spreads across the community, the state and even the nation in the form of lost jobs and higher electricity rates for businesses and families.”

My opinion is as soon as they get these old power plants shut down and demolished they will jack the price of natural gas and there will be no cheap coal and we will be paying big bucks for electricity like never before. If you have a car from 1950 that cost you $100 month to drive and someone wants you to have a new one that costs $1000 a month because it is prettier and cleaner operating...

BeRight. Good catch. Is the economy still flat causing these plant closures or are the CFL's lightbulbs idling them?? It is not only AEP but others like Duke and FirstEnergy are closing down plants too. I will say that the ones being closed were built in the 50's or earlier.

Indiana Michigan Power, an operating unit of American Electric Power , has announced it will retire the 500 MW Tanners Creek 4 generating unit along with the other three units at the plant. All four generating units at the plant will be retired by mid-2015.

The announcement of the retirement of Unit 4 brings the total of coal-fueled generation that will be retired by AEP to 7,176 MW by early 2016.
